ISO 14001 EMS Certification – Key to organizational sustainability and commitment to healthy society
環境管理體系認證 – 組織可持續發展的前提、對健康社會的承諾

Since its publication in 1996, more than 150,000 organizations world-wide have an implemented and certified management system according to ISO14001. This increasing popularity demonstrates that any organization or business sector can benefit from the positive impact. Due to their own positive experiences, many ISO 14001 certified companies are asking their suppliers for this kind of certification in turn, particularly in the area of automotive supply.

On account of the standard’s compatibility with ISO 9001 (quality management), an increasing number of organizations choose to implement integrated management systems, in order to take advantage of the synergies. Environmental, quality, and occupational health and safety management systems (BS OHSAS 18001) are fundamental tools of corporate management; their use demonstrates acceptance of responsibility, and the intention to prevent the waste of resources.

ISO 14001自1996年公告以來,全球已超過150,000間公司實行與驗證此管理系統。由此受歡迎的程度得以證明企業大眾可從其中獲得利益,因此許多通過ISO 14001認證的公司同步要求其供應商亦需取得ISO 14001認證。

由於ISO 14001與ISO 9001之間的一致性,越來越多公司選擇將此兩套管理系統合併執行與認證。品質、環境、職業安全健康這三個管理體系成為公司管理的基本方法並且可釐清責任的歸屬與預防資源的浪費。

Environmental Management at time of Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) 新型冠狀病毒時期的環境管理


Primary Changes to ISO 14001:2015 主要變化點

    • Adoption of High Level Structure
    • Increased requirements for top management commitment and involvement.
    • Emphasis on risk-based thinking
    • Need to understand the context of the organization, the needs and expectations and requirements of interested parties
    • Consideration of a life cycle perspective
    • Increased flexibility on the use of documentation


Clause 4 “Context of the organization” was included as a completely new clause. It requires a better and more strategic understanding of all the factors affecting the way organizations manage their environmental responsibilities. The organization shall determine external and internal issues that are relevant to its purpose and that affect its ability to achieve the intended outcome of its environmental management system. It shall identify the interested parties that are relevant to the environmental management system, as well as their relevant needs and expectations.

Clause 5 “Leadership” recognizes that leadership commitment is critical for the implementation of an EMS, and, in consequence, confirms that the implementation of the EMS is the full responsibility of top management. It requires much more commitment, responsiveness, support and communication from the top management level of an organization. Top management will be expected to ensure that the environmental policy and environmental objectives are established and are compatible with the strategic direction and the context of the organization.

Clause 6 “Planning” requires now, similar to the new requirements of the revised ISO 9001 and in line with the new High Level Structure, that the organization determines the risks associated with threats and opportunities that need to be addressed. The new risk approach covers also the specific requirement for preventive action. In addition to the already existing requirements regarding significant environmental aspects, the clause is now also more specific regarding legal and other requirements related to the environmental aspects, addressing them as “compliance obligations”. Planning also requires the establishment of environmental objectives at relevant functions and levels, taking into account the organization’s significant environmental aspects and applicable requirements and compliance obligations as well as the risk associated with threats and opportunities. When defining the objectives, the organization shall consider its technological options and financial, its operational and business requirements and make sure that the objectives are measurable (when practicable).

Clause 7 “Support” will not include new requirements but is a bit more prescriptive in relation to resource, competence awareness and especially to the required internal and external communication which shall be more appropriate, transparent and reliable.

Clause 8 “Operations” requires now – consistent with a life cycle perspective – the consideration of the value chain that impacts the environmental management system and the control of changes and outsourced processes. It is also more prescriptive in relation to emergency preparedness and response.

Clause 9 “Performance evaluation” now includes in a single new clause and in line with the new High Level Structure several already existing requirements from the current version of ISO 14001, including monitoring, measurement, analysis, evaluation of environmental performance, evaluation of compliance, internal audits and management review.

Clause 10 “Improvement” contains the current non-conformity and corrective action clause but is more structured and more demanding in relation to the consideration of nonconformities and the resulting actions.


ISO 14001 has provided an effective framework for environmental management since 1996 and the revised version will advance the concept of continual improvement in environmental performance. Although the structure will be changed and some requirements will be added or become more prescriptive, many parts remain without significant changes. Nevertheless it is recommend to monitor the revision process and to identify potential need for changes. DQS can give appropriate support through gap analyses and training regarding the new and/or changed requirements.

After publishing the ISO 14001:2015 standard in 2015, a 3-year transition period has ended on Sep 15, 2018.
