What is BS 8555?

BS 8555 is a British Standard, designed as a method for businesses to manage their environmental impact in an affordable way. This standard is split into 6 Phases; each Phase has its own distinct achievement criteria underpinned by the EMS key principles.

BS 8555 was originally designed as a method for working towards ISO14001; however Phase 5 and 6 of Green Ticks exceed this standard.
