ISO 14001:2015 Companies in South Carolina

Goals

To generate a list of all ISO 14001:2015 registered companies in South Carolina, including EHS (Environmental, Health and Safety) contacts, to evaluate the market sizing for a green energy lighting company.

Early Findings

  • ISO 14001:2015 specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that an organization can use to enhance its environmental performance and is applicable to any organization, regardless of size, type and nature.
  • ISO 14001:2015 is the most recently updated version of the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System standard and it now emphasizes environmental performance improvement and encourages companies to focus on organizational context and relevant stakeholders. It also promotes risk based thinking and a life cycle perspective.
  • Companies in South Carolina that are ISO 14001 certified include:
  • Details of these companies with relevant contact information are provided in the attached spreadsheet.

Summary of Early Findings

The initial hour of research was able to identify 5 companies/institutions located in South Carolina that are ISO 14001:2015 certified according to the most recently available information on their company website. A direct search for a listing of companies with this certification proved futile so that the research team instead looked for lists of manufacturing companies in South Carolina and then scoured their company websites for environmental certifications. Additionally, job searches related to EHS and ISO in South Carolina proved useful in narrowing the list of companies that may be ISO 14001:2015 certified since a working knowledge of applicable standards is a typical requirement for candidates.
