The case for an effective EMS

More and more organisations are awakening to the role an environmental management system can play, and the benefits it can deliver. Key considerations include the following:

  • Purchasing decisions (ie by your clients of your services) often require an assessment of environmental performance
  • Poorly managed environmental impacts have significant cost implications
  • Legal compliance requirements are tightening
  • Environmental impact management is a key aspect of corporate responsibility.

An effective environmental management system provides a transparent, accountable management framework with measured outputs and targets. It will identify management responsibilities and roles, ensure legislative compliance, achieve cost control and reduction – and, importantly, meet stakeholder aspirations and requirements.

We can advise on three of the most common and widely recognised systems:

  • ISO 14001 Environmental Management System Standard
