Environmental and Energy management systems

All organisations are now highly conscious of the need to manage their influences and impacts on the environment. Also, the organizations are fully aware of the business risks of not doing so.

Whether you are objective is reducing the energy usage, report your environmental performance or simply better manage your impacts on the environment, LRQA services can help you meet your business objectives. Our certification and verification services have been designed to provide a robust but fair assessment of how you are meeting the environmental management system requirements of your chosen standard or scheme. 

As the first certification body to achieve a full scope of accreditation to ISO 14001 from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), LRQA is able to assess and certificate to ISO 14001 across all industry segments. Developing our energy management system, ISO 50001 service capabilities was a natural extension as we are already provide greenhouse gas emissions verification across 100 countries worldwide. Our technical specialists input into the work of the standards meaning you will benefit from working with a company that has the inside track.

Standards and Schemes we certify:

ISO 14001

ISO 14001 Environmental Management helps identify and prioritise environmental risks as part of normal business practice.

ISO 50001 Energy Management System

ISO 50001 is the international energy management system (EnMS) standard. It is the first global EnMS following from a range of national and regional standards such as EN 16001.

ISO 14064

Increasing numbers of organisations are voluntarily monitoring their greenhouse gas emissions. ISO 14064 is an international standard that provides a framework for greenhouse gas accounting and verification.


Carbon Development Mechanism validation is the independent evaluation of a project activity against the requirements of CDM. It is based on the project's design documentation, in particular the project's baseline, monitoring plan and compliance with relevant UNFCCC and host party criteria, to establish whether tradable credits are generated. In order to register for this scheme, all CDM projects must undergo a validation.
