It is now accepted that the sources of our ever-shrinking world are not infinite, that the environmental effects of our products and activities are not local and regional but global. This consciousness has brought along the need for environmental influences to be controlled by market forces rather than legal practices.
Now being able to exist in the global market is measured with respect and value that is shown to the people. In addition to meeting the expectations and needs of today's consumers at the highest level, today's consumers are demanding respect and respect for the neighborhood and the world they live in, and questioning this on the market.
These developments have revealed the need for management systems that will enable businesses to control their interactions with the environment and to continuously improve their environmental performance and success. Environment, which is one of the most important issues in integration with European Union, It also includes the issues parallel to the requirements of this standard in the inspections carried out by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry.

The standards that define the establishment of the environmental factors at every stage of the product, starting from the raw material to the finished product and being delivered to the customers, and establishing a will to minimize losses by controlling the necessary factors with the necessary examinations and measures and publishing the standards published by the International Standards Organization Series.
ISO 14000 is not a product standard but a system standard, and it is much more concerned with how it is produced than what is produced.

It is required to comply with the conditions defined by the relevant legislation and laws regarding environmental factors.
