created mankind with intellectual superiority over all other creatures. He appointed
Man as the caretaker of all the natural resources on Earth needed to secure the
continuation of life. But mankind has affected the surrounding natural resources
and ecosystems and in turn has been affected by them.
Preservation of environment is the responsibility of all, without any limitation
or restriction. Every individual is responsible for protecting the environment through
prevention of pollution and continuous improvement of the air we breathe, the water
we drink, and the earth we inhabit. However, the Islamic perspective relative to
environment and natural resources is established on the basis of damage prevention,
protection and conservation, so that every life becomes a continuous state of sustainable
development. With environment protection becoming an area of key concern, organizations are increasingly
feeling the need to achieve sound environmental performance to demonstrate that
they are "Good Corporate Citizens".
The ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard is specifically designed to make
organizations capable of reducing the hazards that they are causing to the environment
and have a positive impact on their surroundings. ISO 14001 implies control over
the production process rather than the finished product. This Environmental Management
Standard is integrated with other standards like ISO 9001 and ISO 45001.
All types of businesses, whether small, medium and large can opt for EMS ISO 14001
certification. This is of immense benefit keeping in mind the fact that more and
more clients are insisting that their suppliers or service providers are ISO 14001
certified. Hence, it is obvious that if you fail to have this accreditation, you
will miss out on a number of business opportunities. The trained and experienced
professionals at Mehr Global Consultants (MEHR) help to implement an effective
EMS within your organization. Organizations with a well-designed environmental management
system will definitely fulfill customer expectations and be compliant with regulatory
standards. This in turn increases the brand equity amongst customers, shareholders,
suppliers, regulators and the community at large.
