User Survey for ISO 14001 and ISO 14004
The ISO 14001 Continual Improvement Survey was recently published by ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and set up to obtain feedback from users.
There are more than 440.000 organizations certified worldwide according to ISO 14001, with numbers increasing every year. In Austria the ISO 14001 certifications amount to over 2.200.
The aim of the survey is to develop an understanding of the needs of users and other interested target groups with regard to standards for environmental management systems in order to support the revisions of ISO 14001 and ISO 14004 as well as other related ISO standards. The survey considers key issues and perceived future challenges for environmental management, with the goal of continuous improvement.
