Accompany the company towards environmental and sustainable excellence by optimizing and revitalizing its EMS in line with ISO 14001 international best practices

The project

The leading iron ore producer in an African country has been committed to developing an Environmental Management System (EMS) since 2007. Having obtained ISO 14001 certification in 2011, the company is planning a certification audit according to the 2015 version of the standard in 2017.

The aim is to help the company operationalize and improve its EMS, in line with international best practice in environmental management. This approach also aims to prepare the company for the ISO 14001 certification audit.
