next steps


Environmental protection has become a mainstream political and business issue since the introduction of radical legislation on pollution and the recent global climate change issues. With an increasing amount of legislation emerging from Europe and the introduction of the voluntary standards (ISO 14001 and the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS)), environmental management has never been so important.

For many organisations, adopting a certified Environmental Management System (EMS) is not an option, it’s a customer requirement.

Service Offering

FCL recognises that your EMS must reflect your existing management systems and culture, and we are committed to ensuring our services reflect these goals. When designing and developing an EMS, we use only experienced environmental professionals who are also EMS auditors. We develop clear, easy-to-use controls that in-build legislative compliance and integrate with existing systems and controls.

Whatever your requirements, FCL provides cost effective and tailored support, including:

  • assistance in certification audits;
  • conduct first party ISO 14001 audits, including pre-certification audits.
  • development and implementation of all of your EMS documentation systems;
  • development and implementation of your aspects, impacts, legislation and significance register;
  • development and implementation of your EMS manual;
  • development of EMS scope document;
  • development of registers;

Using the FCL approach to ISO 14001 covers:
