Are You Feeling the Pressure?

Let us Help to turn Your Challenges into Opportunities

Regardless of an organisation's shape, size and business sector, all organisations face an ever increasing number of challenges relating to their environmental performance (see figure left).

More environmental legislation and regulation, higher energy, water and waste disposal costs, increased pressure from business partners and other stakeholders, such as banks, investors and insurance companies; customers wanting your environmental policy or wanting to know your carbon footprint; your workforce and neighbours being more aware of environmental issues and questioning your impact on the environment. There is also your own sense of wanting to do something to play your part and to do your bit for the environment.

The drivers for organisations to actively engage in positive environmental management have never been greater.
  

Environmental Management Standards​

There are three main recognised national and international environmental management standards:-
  • BS EN ISO 14001:2015 “Environmental management systems – Specification with guidance for use”.
  • The European Union’s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS).
  • BS 8555:2016 “Environmental management systems. Guide to the phased implementation of an environmental system including the use of environmental performance evaluation”.

In addition, a number of industry sectors have published their own guidance on environmental management systems, notably the Chemical Industries Association (CIA) within its Responsible Care Management System. Each of these management systems is based on the “plan-do-check-act” management model and embodies the principle of continual improvement as exemplified in the British Standard for quality assurance systems.
Environmental Management  
Legislation in the United Kingdom requires that employers have appropriate arrangements and systems in place for the management and control of environmental matters. In order to achieve this requirement, employers need to have an effective environmental management system that it is clearly defined and well documented.

The Benefits
By implementing an environmental management system organisations will be able to demonstrate legislative compliance, their commitment to environmental issues and the improvement of practices in the management and control of environmental risk. As a direct outcome there should be a reduction in environmental incidents, insurance claims, downtime and costs.
