As organisations are increasingly expected to behave in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner, the need for you to understand and offset your environmental impacts is a vital.
An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a structured framework that allows organisations to understand, describe and control their significant environmental impacts.
The framework also assists in the management of compliance obligations, environmental protection and continual environmental improvement. An EMS can be tailored to the requirements and objectives of an organisation, allowing its environmental impacts and risks to be effectively managed, and can offer a number of direct benefits, including: improved efficiency and productivity; real cost savings, enhanced business reputation; improve market completeness and help plan for the future.
