The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) V aims to have an ISO 14001:2015 Certification before the end of 2019.

One of the requirements of the ISO is the creation or adoption of an Environmental Management System (EMS), which will address the environmental issues of an organization.

Through the EMS, organizations will be able to identify and reduce environmental impacts of its operations in the delivery of its services.
