Why have an Environmental Management System?
An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a tool for managing the impacts of an organisation’s activities on the environment. It provides a structured approach to planning and implementing environment protection measures.
An EMS monitors environment performance and integrates management systems into a company’s daily operations, long term planning and other management systems.
An Environmental Management System (EMS) can assist a company in the following ways:
- Minimise environmental liabilities
- Reduce waste
- Build awareness of environmental concern among employees
- Maximize the efficient use of resources
- Gain a better understanding of the environmental impacts of business activities and
- Demonstrate a good corporate image
- Increase profit, improving environmental performance, through more efficient operations.
Our consulting experts can help you implement EMS and achieve certification
The ISO 14000 series is a voluntary standard that assists organisations to achieve environmental and financial gains through the implementation of effective management. The standards provide both a model for streamlining management, and guidelines to ensure issues relating to the environment are considered within decision making practices.
ISO 14001 is the standard for EMS.
What is an EMS?
An EMS can be a very powerful tool for organisations to not only improve their environmental performance but to also enhance their business efficiency. An EMS is not prescriptive, rather, it requires organisations to take an active role in examining their practices, and then determining how their impacts should best be managed. This approach encourages creative and relevant solutions from within the organisation itself.
Although the implementation of an EMS is essentially a voluntary initiative, it can also become an effective tool for governments to protect the environment as it can assist regulation. For example, regulatory systems can encourage organisations to use EMS to meet the ISO 14000 standard, by providing incentives for strong environmental performance.
Likewise, organisations can use EMS to ensure that their performance is within regulatory requirements, and to keep ahead of more stringent regulations which might be introduced in the future.
Our consulting team utilise a comprehensive Business Diagnostic Questionnaire that is designed to identify and analyse your unique business requirements. With this information, we are then able to engineer a more tailored EMS.
