Environmental Management System

Environmental problems affecting companies are becoming ever more complex. The best way to take control of these issues is to introduce a formalized environmental management system (EMS).
 
EMS helps a company to continually improve its ability to efficiently identify, minimize, prevent and manage environmental impacts as they arise, therefore reducing risk.
 
Certification Standard
 
At the heart of the ISO 14000 series of environment standards is ISO 14001 the standard for an environmental management system. ISO 14001 is the only standard in the series against which a company can be certified. ISO 14001 can be established in any organization, regardless of size or sector. ISO 14001 is concerned with the effectiveness of the EMS itself, and makes no specific demands on environmental performance.
 
System Requirements
 
An EMS requires real commitment and incorporates policy, goals, organization structure, plans, procedures, responsibilities, training and documentation.
