TS EN ISO 14001:2015 ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
It is now accepted all over the world that the resources of our world, which is getting smaller day by day, are not endless, and that the environmental effects of products and activities are not local and regional, but global. This awareness has brought with it the need to control environmental effects with market forces rather than legal practices.
Being able to exist in the global market is now measured by the value and respect given to human beings. Today´s consumers, in addition to meeting their expectations and needs at the highest level, demand that the environment and the world they live in be valued and respected, and they question this in the market.
These developments have revealed the fact that there is a need for management systems that will enable businesses to keep their interactions with the environment under control and to continuously improve their environmental performance and success. Environment, which is one of the most important issues in its integration with the European Union; In addition, the audits carried out by the ministries include subjects parallel to the requests of this standard.
Environmental pollution beyond the borders of the country has made it necessary to seek solutions to environmental problems through international cooperation. Environmental management systems, whose purpose is to reduce waste in the process of producing goods and services, to protect the environment and to use resources efficiently, have gained importance. For this reason, the ISO 14000 Standards Series was developed by the International Standardization Organization and the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System Standard was announced in 1996. The importance given to the certificate is increasing in terms of sustainable development and sustainable trade.
The management system developed in order to systematically reduce and, if possible, eliminate the damages that the enterprises give or may cause to the environment is called the Environmental Management System. The standard in which a series of conditions that standardize this system are determined is the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard.
The first of the environmental management system standards, which is one of the integrated management systems, is the BS 7750 environmental management system standard, which was prepared in 1992 by the British Standards Institute of the United Kingdom. Afterwards, the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS: Eco-Management And Audit Scheme) was established by the European Union. Finally, in 1996, ISO 14001 standard, which is the most accepted environmental management system standard in the world, was created and announced by ISO within the framework of international cooperation. The progress of environmental management systems as a process for integrated environmental policy and programs has accelerated over the past decade.
ISO 14001 Environmental Management System is a management model established on the basis of risk analysis, which aims to reduce the use of natural resources and minimize the damage to soil, water and air.
