What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 is a series of international standards on environmental management. It provides a framework for the development of an environmental management system and the supporting audit programme.

The main thrust for its development came as a result of the Rio Summit on the Environment held in 1992.

The History of ISO 14001

As a result this group recommended that an ISO committee be created to create an international standard.
