ISO 14001: 2015 Environmental Management System

The resources of our world, which is getting smaller every day, is not endless, and the environmental impacts of products and activities are not local and regional, but globally accepted.

This consciousness has brought with it the need to control the environmental impacts with market forces rather than legal applications.

Today's consumer demands and values ​​the environment and the world he lives in, as well as meeting the expectations and needs at the highest level.

These developments have revealed the need for management systems to enable enterprises to control their interactions with the environment and to continuously improve their environmental performance and success.

The Environment, which is one of the most important issues in the integration with the European Union, also includes issues parallel to the requirements of this standard, in the audits conducted by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. .

ISO 14000 Environmental Management System is a management model which is based on risk analysis which aims at minimizing the use of natural resources and minimizing the damages to soil, water and air.

It is a series of standards published by the International Standards Organization, which describes the establishment of a system that minimizes the damage caused to the environment by determining the environmental factors at every stage of the process from raw material to final product and presenting to customers.

It is not a product standard but a system standard and it deals with how it is produced rather than what it is produced.

It is based on the monitoring and improvement of environmental performance. In relation to environmental factors, it is conditional on complying with the conditions defined by the relevant legislation and laws.

The preparation of the ISO 14000 Environmental Management System Standard is based on the decisions taken at the world summit held in Rio in June 1992 and the principles of the Rio Convention.

Nearly a year after the world summit in Rio, a technical committee was formed in 1993 by ISO, consisting of representatives from around 50 different countries, to prepare international environmental management standards.

As a result of the activities of this committee, ISO 14001 Environmental Management System standard was published and implemented in September 1996.

Although the implementation of the ISO 14000 standard is still voluntary, it is estimated that the standard will turn into a mandatory practice in the near future, both by the society, as well as by international organizations and by the state.

The stages of the environmental management system can be summarized as follows:
