What is ISO 14001 certification?

IVE specialises in helping companies achieve ISO 14001 certification, the internationally accepted standard of excellence in environmental management and improvement.

Applicable to any business, regardless of your size, location or turnover, IVE reviews your current systems and implements an Environmental Management System in line with the standards of the ISO which aims to reduce the environmental footprint of a business and decrease the pollution and waste it produces.

We ensure you can be successfully audited for the ISO 14001 and enable you to:

Audits & Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA)

IVE was established in 1993 to offer environmental engineering solutions anywhere in the world.

As a lead auditor of the Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment, IVE undertake environmental audits, assessing systems and sites around the world.

An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a study of the possible impact – positive or negative – that your proposed project may have on the environment, considering all the natural, social and economic aspects. The purpose of the assessment is to ensure that you have beforehand all the facts to consider about ensuing environmental impacts in order to decide whether or not you wish to proceed with the project.

IVE also offer simple innovative solutions which can be implemented to improve your proposed project in order to make it more environmentally sound, often including cost saving benefits and more effective waste management systems.

Once we have helped you to attain your ISO14001 certification we offer regular audits to help ensure that your standards are maintained and certification is not withdrawn in the future.
