The purpose of an Environmental Management System is to control your environmental risks and improve your environmental performance. It’s also an important part of your overall corporate image and competitiveness in the market.
What is an Environmental Management System?
An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a structured framework for managing an organisation’s significant environmental impacts. Some organisations have adopted the framework specified in national or international standards (ISO 14001 for example), which set out the requirements of an EMS, and have had their systems externally assessed and certified against these, others have developed their EMS in a more informal way.
