Environmental Management Systems (EMS)
Historically, companies have managed their own environmental challenges in response to external pressure from government agencies, environmental interest groups, and citizens focusing mainly on regulatory compliance. Today, companies recognize the importance of sound environmental management practices that result in economic gain. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies. International standards covering environmental management are intended to provide organizations with the elements of an effective environmental management system (EMS) that can be integrated with other management requirements and help organizations achieve environmental and economic needs. The standards require that 'each organization shall establish, document, implement, maintain, and continually improve an environmental management system in accordance with the requirements of the international standard and determine how it will fulfill these requirements.' Additionally, all employees and contractors of ISO 14001 certified companies must be aware of the importance of conformance with the company's environmental policy, the roles and responsibilities associated with achieving conformance to the environmental policy (including preparedness and response requirements), and the potential consequences of departure from specified operating procedure. In this course, learners will be introduced to the important concepts of EMS and find out how these apply to their own company's EMS.
