for small business

What is ISO 14001 certification?

ISO 14001 is the international standard for environmental management systems. Traditional environmental management systems like ISO 14001 can work really well for bigger businesses. In theory, they are also suitable for small businesses. In practice, they require levels of time and money that are beyond what most small businesses can sustain. The evidence suggests that, when it comes to businesses at the smaller end of the scale, standard environmental management systems aren’t fit for purpose.

That’s where Green Small Business comes in. We have been an environmental consultant for many years, advising governments, other public agencies and private businesses on topics such as energy, waste and climate change. We’ve have helped develop environmental management systems for organisations and businesses, large and small.

Green Small Business is based on similar principles to ISO 14001 but it allows you to gain independent environmental certification in a way that is proportionate to the size of your business.
