How does environmental management fit into your organisation?
Environmentally responsible organisations act sustainably – that is, they operate in such a way that the resources they rely on are able to endure, remaining diverse and productive. This benefits both the organisation – which can continue to rely on its resources in future – and the environmental, economic and social facets within the organisation and of the wider world, with which the organisation is intrinsically linked.
To achieve this, an organisation must design, develop, implement and maintain environmental standards and procedures, as well as convey them to interested parties. In many cases this is a legal requirement; in others it forms a corporate commitment to environmental sustainability.
Ultimately, an environmental management system (EMS) is a roadmap for achieving the economic benefits of cleaner production, reducing waste and energy use, mitigating the costs and impacts of environmental damage, becoming a safer workplace and improving overall environmental performance. Conformance to the international standard ISO 14001:2015 Environmental management systems – Requirements with guidance for use may be a requirement and we can assist through the development or review of an organisation’s EMS. Implementation and management through the Intelex software system will often be very beneficial for many organisations.
What we do
We give organisations the tools to implement and maintain their EMS for legal compliance, standards certification or due diligence. We provide advice and assistance from start to finish including:
- Environmental auditing – identifying risks and your organisation’s exposure to them
- Intelex software – providing a generally web-based software solution tailored to an organisation’s requirements
- Standard-based management systems – providing a solid framework for your organisation to then implement
- Training development and delivery – transferring knowledge to staff at all levels, from management to the workplace
- Mentoring – working with staff during and after an EMS has been formed, or mentoring organisations to certification
- Advisory services – advising organisations on environmental management matters
- Consulting – providing expertise and information on request
