ISO 14001- ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Environmental Management System standard sets out the criteria for an environmental management system. It provides a framework that a company or organization can follow to set up an effective environmental management system.
It can be used by any organization regardless its activity or sector.
This standard can provide assurance to company management and employees as well as external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved.
1. Why to have ISO 14001:2015
- Meet the company’s legal requirements and environmental impact.
- Keeping the measurable objectives and targets to reduce environmental impact and be in legal compliance.
- Gaining the support for an EMS from the company’s leadership.
- Communicating and sharing the objectives, targets and results with both the internal and external stakeholders.
2. Standard applicable to
Organizations of all kinds which are concerned with achieving and demonstrating sound environmental management system, performance by controlling the impacts of their activities, products and services on the environment, which include manufacturing like Cement, Steel, Pharma, Chemical, Food Processing etc., and service industries likes Construction, ETP service providers and Software service providers.

ISO 14064- SPECIFICATION WITH GUIDANCE AT THE ORGANIZATION LEVEL FOR QUANTIFICATION AND REPORTING OF GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS AND REMOVALS.
Climate change has been identified as one of the greatest challenges facing nations, governments, business and citizens over future decades. Climate change has implications for both human and natural systems and could lead to significant changes in resource use, production and economic activity.
In response, international, regional, national, and local initiatives are being developed and implemented to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations in the Earth’s atmosphere. Such GHG initiatives rely on the quantification, monitoring, reporting and verification of GHG emissions and/or removals.
What is ISO 14064: Specification with guidance at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals
ISO 14064-1 details principles and requirements for designing, developing, managing and reporting organization- or company-level GHG inventories. It includes requirements for determining GHG emission boundaries, quantifying an organization’s GHG emissions and removals, and identifying specific company actions or activities aimed at improving GHG management. It also includes requirements and guidance on inventory quality management, reporting, internal auditing and the organization’s responsibilities for verification activities.
ISO 14064-2 focuses on GHG projects or project-based activities specifically designed to reduce GHG
emissions or increase GHG removals. It includes principles and requirements for determining project baseline scenarios and for monitoring, quantifying and reporting project performance relative to the baseline scenario and provides the basis for GHG projects to be validated and verified.
ISO 14064-3 details principles and requirements for verifying GHG inventories and validating or verifying GHG projects. It describes the process for GHG-related validation or verification and specifies components such as validation or verification planning, assessment procedures and the evaluation of organization or project GHG assertions. ISO 14064-3 can be used by organizations or independent parties to validate or verify GHG assertions.
Why ISO 14064:
- enhance the environmental integrity of GHG quantification,
- enhance the credibility, consistency and transparency of GHG quantification, monitoring and reporting,
- including GHG project emission reductions and removal enhancements,
- facilitate the development and implementation of an organization’s GHG management strategies and plans,
- facilitate the development and implementation of GHG projects,
- facilitate the ability to track performance and progress in the reduction of GHG emissions and/or increase in GHG removals, and
- facilitate the crediting and trade of GHG emission reductions or removal enhancements.

ISO 50001:2018-ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Energy is critical to organizations, but often represents a significant cost – both to them and the environment.
World energy consumption continues to rise, it has more than doubled in the last 40 years and is projected to increase a further 30 % by 2040.
Energy is the major contributor to climate change, making up nearly 60 % of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Taking action to better manage our energy consumption not only helps the planet, it saves money for organizations and society as a whole.
1.What is ISO 50001:2018
ISO 50001:2018, Energy management systems – Requirements with guidance for use, is a strategic tool that helps organizations put in place an energy management system and use their energy more efficiently and effectively.
An energy management system helps organizations better manage their energy use, thus improving productivity. It involves developing and implementing an energy policy, setting achievable targets for energy use, and designing action plans to reach them and measure progress. This might include implementing new energy-efficient technologies, reducing energy waste or improving current processes to cut energy costs.
2.Why ISO 50001:2018
- Reduction in energy consumption
- Energy cost reduction
- Emission reduction
- The reputation of organisation.
- a) is applicable to any organization regardless of its type, size, complexity, geographical location, organizational culture or the products and services it provides;
- b) is applicable to activities affecting energy performance that are managed and controlled by the organization;
- c) is applicable irrespective of the quantity, use, or types of energy consumed;
- d) requires demonstration of continual energy performance improvement, but does not define levels of energy performance improvement to be achieved;
- e) can be used independently, or be aligned or integrated with other management systems.
