ISO 14001 Environmental Management

ISO 14001 Certification Consultants

ISO 14001 Certification is the easiest way to demonstrate that your business is environmentally responsible.

For businesses with a range of environmental issues, an effectively implemented ISO 14001 management system will ensure any legal obligations are consistently met, and demonstrate effective control over any adverse environmental impacts. The system will ensure the significant environmental impacts of your business are reduced.

ISO 14001 can be adopted by any business, regardless of its size or industry. Those in construction, charitiesprint, transport and manufacturing, not to mention others, make frequent use of certification to demonstrate to clients and customers their commitment to the environment.

2SB are experienced ISO 14001 Consultants working in London, Kent, Essex and Sussex and can help you harness the potential of the standard and achieve certification. We also provide a remote ISO 14001 implementation service that can be delivered to clients anywhere in the world. Speak to a consultant about how ISO 14001 can work for your business.

What does it cost?

At 2SB our implementation costs are calculated by the number of days the implementation will take, and are based on the number of standards which you wish to implement at the same time.

The first part of the process os for us to understand how much you already have in place. We normally do throught a quick GAP Analysis and once contacted, we can we quickly put together a proposal on cost once we have learnt a little more about your business. This can range from a few consulting days (between £2500 to around £7000) depending on how long your implementation will require. Costs will vary so its best to get a GAP Analysis and proposal done before you finalise the budget.

In addition there are the costs of certification which are again calculated on a daily rate by the Certification Body and depend on the size of your organisation and the number of standards you want certified. In order to remain certified you will have to pay for annual surviellance costs as well as every third year for the costs of recertification. Costs from an accreditation body can very from around £3000 upwards. It will depend on how many standards you have, the number of staff and other things like the rate the auditor is charged at.
