At Taipec, we are highly committed to environmental responsibility. As part of our ongoing efforts to uphold the highest standards, we have undertaken a journey towards ISO 14001:2015 certification. This international standard for environmental management systems (EMS) aligns with our values, driving us to improve our environmental performance and contribute to a sustainable future.
New ISO standards are easily integrated into existing ISO management systems. Another ISO standard that we adhere to is the ISO 9001 for quality management. The ISO 14001:2015 standard serves as a blueprint for organisations aiming to enhance their environmental management. It focuses on various areas relevant to operations, for example, issues involving air, water, sewage, soil and efficient resource utilisation and adaptability to changing environmental conditions. By providing a framework for achieving intended outcomes in EMS, ISO 14001:2015 not only improves environmental performance but also positions organisations for competitive advantage by building trust.
This standard guides organisations in implementing effective environmental management systems which foster a culture of sustainability and responsibility. By adhering to its requirements, organisations can proactively address environmental challenges, reduce their carbon footprint and demonstrate their commitment to sustainable practices. One example is Serigraph Inc. which utilised the standard including the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) cycle to become a socially responsible organisation (SRO) and as a result was able to reduce its environmental footprint (Journal for Quality and Participation).
Role of ISO 14001:2015 in the Food & Beverage Industry
In the food and beverage industry, businesses can leverage this standard to align their operations with eco-friendly practices, contributing to a healthier planet while gaining a competitive edge. The ISO 14001:2015 standard has a profound impact on food and beverage businesses by prompting them to assess and optimise their environmental impact, leading to more sustainable practices. These could include packaging, water use, sustainable sourcing and complying with environmental regulations. This not only benefits the planet but also elevates reputation and credibility, particularly making accredited companies more appealing to individuals who prioritise strong environmental values.
The standard gives companies an advantage both a competitive and financial advantage due to reduced costs and increases in efficiencies. It also allows companies to achieve their business aims by integrating the targeting of environmental issues into business systems.
