This seminar will help you to create an aspects and impacts register to meet the requirements of ISO 14001.

About this Event

If you tender for contracts with government or large companies, you might have been asked to give an environmental policy. You might have been asked about ISO 14001. The contract might ask you how you deal with environmental damage.

So, what do you do that damages the environment most? Do you know? Are you interested in finding out? Indeed, do any of your activities enhance the environment?

The international environmental management Standard (ISO 14001) gives you a framework to manage what you do, so that you can identify and manage your impacts. The standard asks that you hold written information about your aspects and impacts. Creating a register (or table) is one of the most widely used tools.

Our next seminar will look at creating this ‘Aspects and Impacts’ Register that details:

  • What you do
  • Whether it is covered by law
  • What aspects and impacts are associated with your activities
  • What damage may be caused.

You will score your impacts to find out where your worst damage (or impact) is. This then enables you to rank the impacts and reduce the damage you might cause.

You will also be looking at the risks and opportunities that come from addressing your impacts, and you might be surprised at the benefits that come out of this exercise.

Our speaker, Dr Margaret Rooney, was an ISO 14001 auditor for NQA – an accredited certification body. She has a wealth of experience of advising companies about how they can create these registers and make them work.

Companies starting out on their ISO 14001 journey and businesses that need a refresher on dealing with their register will find this seminar useful. This seminar is free to Green Business Network members, who should book via our website at:
