ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 50001:2018 are standards for environmental and energy management systems respectively. Realization of their full potential will deliver bottom line financial results for the organization and its stakeholders.

Course Objectives:

• An overview of ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 50001:2018, including clauses in the newer energy management system standard that can enhance the environmental management system standard
• How to exceed the requirements of ISO 14001 to avoid making waste, or else turn it into money.
• How to use the material and energy balance; a powerful analytical technique from which no material or energy waste can hide.
• How to recognize other forms of material and energy waste on sight. The workforce is often positioned ideally to do this.
• How to refuse (to make the waste), reduce waste, reuse waste, and recycle waste

Why Should You Attend:

We must already comply with environmental regulations, so why do we need ISO 14001? Henry Ford proved roughly 100 years ago, long before there were any meaningful environmental regulations, that it is profitable to avoid discharging any kind of waste into the environment. Modern manufacturers are similarly learning the virtues of zero emissions with regard not only to environmental aspects but also wastes that are not environmental aspects. Attendees will learn how to apply ISO 14001 and also ISO 50001 for maximum bottom line performance.

Course Outline:

• Introduction to ISO 14001 and ISO 50001, and their key clauses

          o Clauses of the newer ISO 50001 standard with applicability to ISO 14001, including the concept of a material and energy review.

• The ISO standards and the bottom line; don't let their requirements limit what we can do with them. If we focus on "meeting requirements," we are likely to overlook significant opportunities.

          o Waste wood is, for example, not an environmental aspect even today. Henry Ford made $12,000 a day in the money of the 1920s by distilling his waste wood into chemical products and Kingsford charcoal rather than throwing it away.

• The material and energy balance is a chemical engineering analytical technique from which no material or energy waste can hide. It is synergistic with ISO's process approach in terms of inputs, process, and outputs.

• Observation will identify many energy and material wastes that would otherwise hide in plain view, if the workforce knows what to look for. Pay attention to everything that is thrown away. Light pollution is meanwhile evidence (visible for miles) of enormous energy waste.

• The Four Rs:

          o Refuse to make the waste. Henry Ford, for example, coked his coal to extract the valuable coal chemicals and also the sulfur. He sold the latter as ammonium sulfate fertilizer and thus refused to make the environmental aspect (acid rain) long before there were any sulfur oxide regulations whatsoever.
          o Reduce the amount of waste generated
          o Reuse the waste. The Tuticorin (India) coal fired power plant, for example, converts carbon dioxide into soda ash, and for a net profit.
          o Recycle the waste.
          o Numerous examples will be provided of how organizations already do these things and have done them in the past.
