With an upgrade looming in the main standard required of public sector and large corporate procurers (ISO 14001), research by the employers' organisation, the EEF, suggests that many employers are missing a trick when it comes to their environmental management systems (EMS).

Changes to ISO 14001 next year will affect significantly the way firms will have to view and apply their EMS. However, the EEF, which questioned 650 organisations, says many companies across a range of sectors are in danger of falling short when it comes to the changes - and some could potentially lose out as a result.

The EEF is urging businesses to use its free online gap analysis tool to find out where they currently stand on EMS and what more they could or should be doing. This can be accessed from our news item here.
