Overview of ISO 14001
ISO 14001 - Environmental Management System is a management tool used to direct and control all activities of an organization with the potential ability to cause impacts to the surrounding environment.
ISO 14001 gives a set of common requirements as a framework for organizations to be able to form an environmental management system of their own. Thereby, helping organizations towards building a systematic approach to the management methods will support them in achieving the balance between maintaining profitability and reducing environmental impact.
This standard does not provide specific criteria on the environment, therefore, it can be applied to any organization wishing to do so, regardless of the size, the products and services. However, the standard emphasizes that the organization must consider the legal requirements related to the environment in the process of implication. Therefore, organizations should at least have a feasible plan to meet the legal requirements of the environment where the organization plans to build its management system.

The content of ISO 14001
Besides the general requirements and continuous improvement, standard ISO 14001 based on a fundamental management thinking "Plan - Do - Check – Act”, composes of five main factors, including Environmental policy planning => Planning => Implementing and operating => Check and remedy => Management review.

Benefits of ISO 14001
It is crucial that the organization is reviewing its impact on the environment and establishing a management system, which not only benefits the environment but also reduces cost and improves operation effectiveness of the organization. ISO 14001 can help organizations to fulfil this goal.

A well-planned framework of energy management systems would help organizations to follow a systematic approach. In some cases, the law enforcement agency may be more flexible for each company that has applied ISO 14001.
