ISO 14001 is an international standard to reduce the environmental impact of the organisation..
The Business Model is an integrated electronic Model of your Business. It incorporates and interlinks the Process Diagrams describing your processes, Objectives / Action Plans / Your KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) / Responsibilities and optional Risks. Also existing Documents and Forms can be linked to the relevant Process or part of the Model.
The original Business Model is based on the relevant standard (i.e. ISO 14001)
The Business Model is loaded onto our dedicated Server with security controls, virus checking and backups. Your employees have direct access to your Business Model using Internet Explorer or a Web Browser and can change key aspects of the Model.
It is appreciated that often:
There is, perhaps never the right time in to commit to any additional activity. However, ISO 14001 should provide a systematic solution to cope better and extend operational capability and provide the means to handle change. The sooner you start, the sooner you can benefit from Accreditation.
An ISO 14001 decision is a straight forward commercial investment to produce a solid return and business gain.
ISO 14001 is not miracle cures; it provides the structure and route to improved quality but without vision, drive and enthusiasm, ISO 14001 can not ensure that the correct destination is always reached. Change and improvement often takes time to evolve, a donkey may never win a blood stock cup, but it will win in a donkey derby!
ISO 14001 and other Standards are tools; how the tool is used, depends on the organisation especially senior management.
