This course is specifically designed for managers with environmental and/or sustainability responsibilities. The course provides a clear path towards successfully achieving ISO 14001 Transition – with any accredited certification body. All new requirements from the 2015 revision of the standard will be considered and participants will be empowered to return to their organizations and effectively implement the methodologies shared on the course.
Participants will learn how the new ISO 14001:2015 standard supports the strategic direction of the organization and how new ISO Clause requirements enhance the relevance of this management system. Participants will consider risks and opportunities that may impact environmental performance and will develop a more focused planning approach, to achieve environmental objectives.
The ‘leadership’ clause will be considered in a way that enables managers to engage with top executives within the organization and secure their ‘buy-in’ with key environmental initiatives. Performance evaluation will also be reviewed in depth, enabling managers to evaluate the effectiveness of the environmental management system while simultaneously delivering improvements on a continuous basis. Arrangements for reviewing organizational environmental compliance (regulatory) will be investigated and participants will learn how to establish an effective compliance framework for the benefit of the organization.
The course is interactive and is comprised of presentations, case studies, technical process learning and supplemental discussions related to various industries and the challenges of implementation.
