The ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) focuses on that specific component of an organization's management structure that addresses the immediate and long-term impact of its products, services and processes on the environment. The ISO 14001 standard provides order and consistency in how an organization assigns responsibilities, allocates resources and evaluates practices, procedures and processes that affect the environment.

A formal EMS is essential to an organization's ability to anticipate and meet growing environmental performance expectations and to ensure ongoing compliance with national and international requirements. Companies that have adopted a formal EMS tend to utilize their human and raw material resources more effectively and have better compliance records.
