Many global organizations are ISO certified. Specifically, ISO 14001 addresses the elements of responsible operation toward the environment. The framework indicates that an organization should maintain a policy addressing the following elements:
Top management shall define its organization’s environmental policy, and ensure it is appropriate to the environmental impact of its activities, products and services. Commitment to continuous improvement, prevention of pollution and compliance with legislation and regulations shall be documented, implemented and maintained. The environmental objectives and targets shall be set and reviewed. The policy shall be communicated to all persons working for the organization and be made available to the public. (Source: TWI)
