Environmental Management Systems

Many organisations not only wish to achieve compliance with environmental legislation, but they want to demonstrate sound environmental performance. As a consequence they will implement an environmental management system to help control its impacts and meet their requirements of relevant legislation.

The two main standards for environmental management are ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Systems) and EMAS (Eco-management and Auditing Scheme). ISO 14001 and EMAS are standards related to environmental management systems. Accreditation to one of these standards shows that a company has an effective environmental management system. This is useful as it will inherently help regulatory issues to be addressed and will satisfy the interests of many parties.

Whether you are already working towards formal accreditation of your environmental management system or if you are just thinking about starting to work towards it, Verde Environmental Consultants can assist you. Support can be provided in the form of practical help and feedback, as well as a gap analysis report. This will allow you to gain an overview of how far you have to go to be compliant with standards such as ISO 14001 or EMAS and, more importantly, how you can bridge the gaps.
