As part of my ongoing commitment to increasing the communication and understanding of the new requirements of ISO 14001:2015, I developed and published an article in the September 2015 issue of the CIWM (Chartered Institution of Wastes Management) Journal under the title of “Fit For The Next Decade”.
The title for the article is based on the body of work executed by ISO (International Organization for Standardization) that has research and canvassed opinions from around the world to ensure that this version of ISO 14001 meets the needs for effective environmental management for businesses, now and for the next decade.
The article was written to outline the key changes for organisations to get on-board with environmental management systems & advice on the transition to ISO 14001:2015 certification.
It provides a clause-by-clause breakdown of the new requirements as well as a look to the future for organisations, who are keen to show leadership in the environmental arena by being early adopters of the new International Standard.
Indeed, the article has been well received by fellow environmental professionals & it was selected for the CIWM CPD (Continuing Professional Development) mark to highlight the relevance of environmental management to the CIWM membership as well as a signpost to the information for professional interviews for individuals seeking to become full members of the CIWM.
