What is ISO 14001?

An ISO 14001 environmental management system is a tool for managing the impact of an organisation on the environment. ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised standard which can be applied to a business of any size, within any sector. To learn more about ISO 14001 and how it could help you to increase efficiency, enhance company image, manage risk and reduce costs contact our expert team today.

Moving toward the new standard

Following regular review the ISO 14001: 2004 standard will be replaced by ISO 14001: 2015. Although the core focus on the environment is the same, there are key changes with the new standard including:

  • A focus on Risks and Opportunities
  • Introduction of the Context of the Organisation
  • Focus on a Life Cycle Perspective

The deadline for moving to the new standard is September 2018. From this time it will not be possible to obtain certification to ISO 14001: 2004.

How is Comply Direct different?

  • Friendly, open, supportive approach, don’t get bogged down in jargon
  • Practise what we preach – we are proud to be ISO 14001:2015 certified
  • Benefit of a team of environmental compliance experts

ISO 50001

The ISO 50001 standard provides organisations with a framework to manage their energy more effectively in order to help reduce energy and save costs whilst meeting environmental requirements.

The standard assures certification under ISO following full implementation of an energy management system.

Through implementation of best practice energy management achieving ISO 50001 status you will:

  • Reduce GHG emissions and carbon footprint
  • Reduce energy consumption
  • Increase energy cost savings
  • Improve resource efficiencies through better management of equipment
  • More control of energy supply and better understanding of risks
  • Improve energy awareness amongst employees
  • Improve environmental credentials and relationships with stakeholders
  • Improved operational efficiencies

Energy is a rising cost for most businesses and having a best practice Energy Management system in place makes good as well as 'green' business sense.

For businesses committed to reducing their impact in Climate Change, being certified to the ISO 50001 standard is a verified way to achieve this.

ISO 50001 provides an alternative route for compliance with ESOS. The Phase 2 deadline for ESOS compliance is 5 January 2019. Contact our team to discuss the option of ISO 50001 as a route to ESOS compliance.

Comply Direct are experts in managing compliance including the standard set out by ISO 50001:2011 and will support you in becoming certified as well as developing a realistic and achievable plan for your business to achieve this status. We will also assist with drafting a carbon governance strategy that will join with the ISO 50001 system.

Carbon Management

There are significant economic and environmental benefits for organisations that successfully implement carbon management strategies and mitigation measures. 

It is estimated that the average SME wastes around £7,000 per annum through ineffective carbon management; this equates to approximately 20% of their annual energy bills. This also represents the equivalent bottom-line benefit of a 10% increase in sales.

Monitoring, managing and reducing an organisation’s carbon emissions - particularly where reductions can be achieved in the amount of energy consumed - not only deliver immediate cost savings, but is important for the longer term finances of any organisation taking into account such factors as reputation, brand value, risk management, increased sales, legal compliance and enhanced staff recruitment and retention.

Our carbon management services include carbon footprinting, product level carbon analysis, carbon reduction strategies, carbon neutral services and carbon offsetting.

Carbon Footprint Measurement

Our carbon footprint measurement service will enable you to understand, quantify, and manage your organisation's greenhouse gas emissions.

Comply Direct use the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol when calculating carbon footprints - the most widely used international accounting tool, it enables UK organisations to understand, quantify, and manage greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon footprint calculations typically include oil and gas tonnages consumed on-site, an organisation’s vehicle use, electricity use, employee travel and data on any other sort of emissions relevant to an organisation.

For more information about calculating your carbon footprint, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our carbon experts.

Carbon Reduction Strategy

Through our carbon reduction strategy service we agree realistic targets for your business to reduce carbon and save money.

Comply Direct produce cost-based scenarios (following on-site energy surveys) to illustrate what a specified carbon emissions reduction target might look like in terms of:

  • operational efficiency (reduction in overhead spend)
  • return on investment in improved technology
  • return on investment in renewable energy
  • investment in carbon offsetting schemes 

We facilitate a half-day workshop for a company's employees on the carbon reduction strategy and carbon saving initiatives

At the request of a company, we can also create collateral to support employee engagement programmes focused specifically around carbon efficiency.

Carbon Neutral Service

We will work with you to plan the reduction of your carbon emissions, ensuring that only unavoidable emissions are offset.

Carbon neutral status can be defined as achieving a net zero carbon footprint by balancing the amount of carbon emissions released with an equivalent amount sequestered, avoided or offset.

A business carbon footprint is measured by identifying the amount of carbon dioxide that it is responsible for producing.

To achieve carbon neutral status, a business must either reduce its Carbon Footprint to zero or use a carbon reduction activity to offset its carbon footprint.

Through the implementation of a Carbon Management plan, Comply Direct work with organisations to actively reduce and avoid carbon emissions, ensuring that only unavoidable emissions are offset.

Carbon Offsetting

Provision of carbon offset packages that are both environmentally sustainable and support carbon emissions reduction.

Comply Direct’s expert carbon management service has allowed us to create viable Carbon Offset packages that are both environmentally sustainable and support carbon emissions reduction.

Carbon offsets offer reliable and immediate support to ensure that an organisation meets its carbon emissions reduction commitments and can ultimately help an organisation become carbon neutral. 

Comply Direct support a number of verified carbon offset projects including renewable energy and natural resource conservation. Offsets enable your organisation to meet carbon reduction targets and support your own carbon reduction plan.
