» Back to listing Revision to the International EMS Standard ISO 14001

7th November 2013

The revised edition of the international standard for environmental management systems – used by over 285,800 organisations worldwide – has just moved a step closer to completion, with an agreement reached on the draft text for the next round of consultation.

The EMS standard is being revised in line with a new high-level structure for all management system standards adopted by ISO, and a series of wide-ranging recommendations from ISO's EMS Future Challenges report.

Key changes in the revised draft standard include:

  • Understanding the organisation’s strategic context and engagement with interested parties
  • Greater focus on environmental performance improvement across the value chain
  • Evaluating organisational risks and opportunities in the context of external environmental conditions (e.g. adapting to climate change, resource availability)
  • Strengthening requirements on the involvement of top management and integration of environmental management into core business processes and alignment with business strategy
  • Greater clarity on external communication, including emphasis on data quality and assurance.
