Why do we need to do ISO14000 environmental management system certification?
1. Promote international trade
ISO14000 is a flexible environmental management system standard from the perspective of trade facilitation.It does not specify absolute requirements for environmental performance, except that it requires enterprises to make commitments to comply with relevant laws, regulations and continuous improvement in their environmental policies. Therefore, two enterprises engaged in similar activities with different environmental performance may meet the requirements of ISO14000.At the same time, ISO14000 emphasizes that it complies with the environmental laws and regulations of its own region rather than those of the country where the export market is located, according to the environmental conditions of its own region.This reflects the principle of reciprocity in trade, conducive to the elimination of technical barriers to trade.
