In 1996, the ISO 14001 environmental management was adopted and published as an internationally recognised environmental standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS).
ISO 14001 introduces a more efficient process for using resources and reducing waste and is the most successful environmental management standard globally and is applied to all types of organisations, whether public or private. As a result, there are more than 350,000 certifications to ISO 14001 in 171 countries.
Critical Path provides a vast range of ISO 14001 consultancy and ISO 14001 training services. We cover a range of tailored environmental solutions based on our clients’ identified needs; our experienced team offer consulting services such as onsite environmental surveys, compliance obligation reviews and aerial site surveys via drone technology.
Deciding which ISO standards will benefit your organisation can be difficult and time-consuming. Our team are here to assist you through the process from start to finish. We recommend scheduling an introductory call with one of our advisors to understand your business requirements better.
Should you choose Critical Path to help you achieve and manage ISO, you will be assigned a designated ISO consultant to arrange a gap analysis onsite at your offices. The gap analysis includes a full review of your current internal policies, processes, and procedures. Then, your consultant will work with you to 'fill in the gaps' and provide you with all documents required.
Your designated ISO consultant will prepare a bespoke action plan to work with you to redesign your internal processes and document changes; this is the start of your business’s journey to achieving ISO certification.
Upon completing the action plan, your consultant will work with you to prepare all documentation and processes to comply with the latest ISO standards. You will have nearly reached your goal of becoming an ISO certified business.
We will provide you with staff training and unlimited remote support. Over time, this will save your organisation time and money on employing an in-house dedicated ISO resource as Critical Path to manage everything for you.
Your ISO consultant will carry out an online or onsite pre-audit of your management system to prepare you for the official audit that a third-party auditing body must carry out. We have a track record of a 100% pass rate for both UKAS and non-UKAS audits, and we are partnered with the best auditing bodies to help arrange the audit for you and streamline the process.
ISO standards are not specific to any industry and, therefore, can be applied to organisations of any size and sector. Our highly experienced team have 15+ years of experience assisting clients in the following sectors: manufacturing, engineering, construction, healthcare, oil and gas, commercial cleaning, aerospace, utilities, railway and transport.
We have assisted 800+ clients in developing permanent control over their quality products, processes and improvement opportunities.

Environmental responsibility is a pressing moral and personal concern, so adhering to the ISO 14001 standards will help your business in endless ways.
Achieving ISO 14001 reduces business operating costs by implementing environmental procedures to help you conserve energy, reduce wastage, implement best practices, improve your organisation's efficiency, and minimise the risks of ecological incidents.
In meeting the standards, you may open new business opportunities as suppliers, clients, and stakeholders want to deal with environmentally conscious businesses that meet legal and regulatory requirements.
ISO 14001 can help you stay ahead of your competition and ensure your business is adequately prepared for the constantly changing business landscape.
The ISO 14000 family of Standards helps organisations to develop effective strategies to manage ecological issues and sets out guidelines to help you and your organisation meet legal and regulatory requirements, as well as your consumers’ ever more stringent expectations of corporate responsibility, particularly when it comes to environmental responsibility.
The ISO 14000 standards align with the ISO’s commitment to meeting climate change challenges and as a standard recognised internationally for guiding businesses on how to put an effective environmental management system in the workplace – and how to remain commercially viable while doing so.
ISO 14001 focuses on managing the environment and pollutants by reviewing your environmental impact as a company and monitoring and potentially reducing these impacts to make yourself greener and as environmentally friendly as possible. ISO 14001 can also help you grow sustainably whilst reducing the environmental impact of this growth.
ISO 14001 provides a framework for organisations to design and implement an effective environmental management system (EMS); the standard is designed to help businesses meet environmental responsibilities and mitigate their environmental impact through various measures.
We offer a vast range of ISO 14001 training courses, services and resources around the ISO 14001 requirements. Our team will review your organisation’s current processes against the requirements of ISO 14001; then, if required, we will redesign your internal processes and document changes by tailoring our support to suit your needs.
