ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (EMS ISO 14001:2004)

An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a set of processes and practices that enable an organization to reduce its environmental impacts and increase its operating efficiency. It is a framework that helps an organization to achieve its environmental goals through consistent control of its operations. The assumption is that this increased control will improve the environmental performance of the company. The EMS itself does not dictate a level of environmental performance that must be achieved; each organization's EMS is tailored to the organization's business and goals An Environmental Management System (EMS) determines and continuously improves an organization’s environmental position and performance. It follows an outline and is managed like any other facet of a business; quality, safety, etc, and provides a framework for implementing improvements or to meet regulatory requirements. Ideally, it is built on an existing quality management system. (ISO 9001).

EMS specifies requirements for an environmental management system to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects. It applies to those environmental aspects that the organization identifies as those which it can control and those which it can influence. It does not itself state specific environmental performance criteria.EMS is applicable to any organization that wishes to establish, implement, maintain and improve an environmental management system, to assure itself of conformity with its stated environmental policy, and to demonstrate conformity with ISO 14001:2004 by:

  1. making a self-determination and self-declaration, or
  2. seeking confirmation of its conformance by parties having an interest in the organization, such as customers, or
  3. seeking confirmation of its self-declaration by a party external to the organization, or
  4. seeking certification/registration of its environmental management system by an external organization.
All the requirements in ISO 14001:2004 are intended to be incorporated into any environmental management system. The extent of the application will depend on factors such as the environmental policy of the organization, the nature of its activities, products and services and the location where and the conditions in which it functions.
