IEMA reports 8% growth in global ISO 14001 data

Data on the uptake of the international environmental management system (EMS) standard ISO 14001 shows that the number of certificates issued worldwide has grown 8% over the past year.

IEMA reported that the data published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) shows a global year-on-year increase of almost 27,000 certificates between 2015 and 2016. The worldwide total of accredited ISO 14001 certificates reported now stands at 346,190, up from 319,324 in the 2015 data report. 

The UK has held its position as fourth in the global league table for the fourth consecutive year, with 16,761 certificates. However, its total is down from the 17,824 reported last year – the only nation in the top five to report a year-on-year dip.
