ISO 14001 – Playas de Benicàssim

Environmental management systems are based on ISO 14000 reference standards, of which the most widespread is ISO 14001:2015.

The ISO 14001 standard establishes tools and systems focused on the production processes and services of any company or organization, and the effects they have on the environment. The objective of this standard is to provide companies with appropriate methodologies for the implementation of an environmental management system.

ISO 14000 is an environmental management standard that, once implemented, will affect all aspects of an organization’s management of its environmental responsibilities and will help organizations to systematically address environmental issues in order to improve environmental performance and opportunities for economic benefit.
