With the environment a hot topic for politicians in the lead-up to the election, the pressure is on Australian businesses to become more environmentally friendly in their operations.
More and more companies are seeking environmental management system certification, by implementing environmental management systems, in line with ISO 14001.
While certification is not yet compulsory, voluntary accreditation improves an organisation's reputation, and makes it more likely to win major contracts and Government tenders.
It shows a commitment by the business to lessen its impact on the environment, by making better use of resources, reducing waste, reducing water usage, and reducing the risk of pollution.
Environmental management systems training via a recognised provider - such as Standard Consulting in Brisbane - brings an organisation into line with current legislation, ensuring compliance with environmental protection laws.
With the recent revision and upgrade of ISO 14001, now is the time for Queensland businesses to implement or upgrade their environmental management system.
Implementation begins with an analysis of the business's current systems, by Standard Consulting's experienced experts.
They will tailor-make an environmental management system specifically to suit that organisation, and provide full training across the board.
ISO 14001 is the most widely used environmental management system in the world, with hundreds of thousands of organisations certified globally.
Certification brings many benefits to the organisation, including a reduction in operating costs, and generally increased profit and more customers.

Their consultants are experienced across all major industries, from mining and manufacturing to hospitality and health.
They provide systems specifically built to suit each organisation, and 100 per cent of their clients achieve certification first time.
