ISO 14001

Today, it can be claimed that according to studies conducted in various fields, environmental pollution occurs from various sources. In other words, the progress of human civilization and the development of technology, and the increasing population has caused the problem of air and ground pollution. This has led to the increasing disruption of the environment and dealing with its negative outcomes as one of the most important issues and challenges in the world. If the consequences of environmental degradation are ignored and it continues to be exploited excessively, it can occupy the international community with many problems. This has created a public demand for the preservation of the environment and the expansion of conservation programs.
Achieving a balance between the environment, society and the economy is essential to satisfy today's needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This has led organizations to take a systematic approach to environmental management to help the pillars of sustainable development by implementing environmental management systems.

History of ISO 14001

Today, the ISO 14001 environmental management system is recognized as one of the most successful management systems. Many industries receive certificates every year. The BS7750 is named as the first published environmental standard in the world. This standard was introduced in 1992 by the British Standards Institution. It can be said that before the publication of this standard, environmental management was considered a part of larger systems such as responsible care. This standard laid the groundwork for the creation of an international environmental standard. Finally, in 1996, the first series of ISO 14001 standards was published by the International Organization for Standardization. A newer version of the standard was released in 2004 to meet the needs of users. Ultimately, in 2015 the final version of the standard was made available for organizations and industries.
