Consultant Development in EMS Based on ISO 14001:2015 Standard

“The international standard of ISO 14001:2015 EMS is a widely recognized environmental management tool applied in diverse set of organizations all around the globe. As an individual engaged in the context of environmental management, acquiring the necessary knowledge and skills in such tools are utmost important. Therefore, I chose the consultant development training programme on ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System (EMS) offered by the National Cleaner Production Center of Sri Lanka. Being a recognized and reputed organization in Sri Lanka, the NCPC provides participants with an excellent platform to develop their theoretical and practical know-how in setting up EMS in different organizations. The program has immensely helped me to enhance my capacity in Environmental Management which will help to intensify my contribution towards a more sustainable future.”

Identifying the need of the hour

Environmental management becomes necessary because of the impact created by human beings due to different activities. Today most organizations also consider environmental management a business necessity because it helps businesses be good stewards of their resources, which ultimately results in lower operating costs and minimize the pollution.

ISO 14001 is the most practiced tool in the world that sets out the criteria for an environmental management system (EMS) and can be certified. It maps out a framework that a company or organization can follow to set up an effective EMS. ISO 14001 is designed for any type of organization, regardless of its activity or sector, it can provide assurance to company management and employees as well as external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved. The latest standard ISO 14001:2015 responds to the newest trends, such as an increasing recognition by companies of the need to factor in both external and internal elements that influence their impact, including climate volatility.
