What is an Environmental Management System or EMS?

Slide 5

The Principles of Environmental Management There are several key principles involved in any effective environmental management system, and these are typically built around the Plan – Do – Check – Act or PDCA cycle. This iterative approach of review, evaluation and improvement is common to most successful management systems and is designed to help organisations achieve their environmental goals and objectives and also identify and act upon opportunities for future improvement. Plan – Do – Check – Act These key principles may be applied to organisations of all sizes and structures, across all industry sectors. There is however ample room for individual organisations to tailor any EMS they adopt to suit their own environmental objectives and their specific operational environment. The key principles of any good environmental management system include:

COMMITMENT OF SENIOR MANAGEMENT The senior management team of any organisation needs to commit fully to reducing its environmental impact through improvements to its environmental performance and the creation of its own environmental policy. The environmental policy should be seen as the foundation of the environmental management system. PLAN AHEAD Consider the environmental goals of the organisation and how to achieve them in the most effective way. This will also include meeting any legal and regulatory standards that must be achieved. Realistic objectives and targets should be agreed upon and then incorporated in to an action plan. This action plan should identify roles and responsibilities, time scales and those actions required to meet the environmental objectives and targets that have been set. FOLLOW THROUGH WITH EACH STEP OF THE ACTION PLAN Following through with each step of the environmental action plan will help to ensure every part of the plan is delivered and nothing is left out. This implementation stage will include the development of practical operating procedures, establishing clear lines of communication, staff training and environmental awareness. CHECK & EVALUATE THE RESULTS Performing regular audits to check and evaluate an organisations environmental performance against its stated aims and objectives is very important. These vital stages provide accountability to ensure every step in the plan has been covered. It also provides an opportunity to ensure the actions taken have delivered the desired results.

Why Implement an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System?

Slide 8

Environmental Management Systems & ISO 14001 Certification Any organisation wishing to use a specialist EMS framework to help them focus on their environmental responsibilities and so drive improvements to their environmental performance should consider adopting a recognised management system already used by other organisations and companies worldwide. The first instance of such an environmental system was published in June 1992 as BS 7750. Four years later BS 7750 was followed by ISO 14001, a comprehensive environmental management system developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). ISO 14001 is based around the Plan – Do – Check – Act or PDCA approach and is the now the most popular environmental management standard having been adopted by thousands of organisations around the world. The standard was updated in September 2015 and ensures that strong leadership, improved performance and an in-depth approach remain essential building blocks of this environmental management system.
