Our Consulting Approach
The ISO 14001 standard outlines the requirements for organizations to establish, implement, maintain, and improve an Environmental Management System to enhance its environmental performance. ISO 14001 is the second largest of all ISO standards, based on the number of certificates issued worldwide which currently stands at almost 350,000.
While certain organizations may have a larger impact on the environment than others, ISO 14001 is applicable to any organization, regardless of size, type and nature. It applies to the environmental aspects of the activities, products, and services that the organization determines it can either control or influence considering a life cycle perspective.
Mireaux Management Solutions has extensive experience conducting various types of audits against the ISO 14001 standard, including the following:
Mireaux can help you implement an audit program that is suitable to your organization and that can be carried out effectively and consistently.

As in all ISO standards, the ISO 14001 belongs to a family of standards that provides practical tools for organizations of all kinds looking to manage their environmental responsibilities. The only standard that you can certify to -within this family- is the ISO 14001 standard, which was updated in 2015. Prior to this, the standard’s last version was issued in 2004.
If your organization is seeking a new ISO 14001 certification, the version that you should use is the 2015 version. If you are currently certified to the 2004 version and need to transition to the 2015 version, please contact us.
With the advent of the “Common Framework” embedded in all ISO standards, implementation of multiple ISO standards can be done easier and more cohesively. Organizations already certified to ISO 9001, ISO 45001, or other management systems need not develop a separate management system for ISO 14001. Rather, these organizations should enhance their existing management systems, building upon a good infrastructure, and strengthen it based on the changed or new requirements.
