Services: Environmental Management Systems
Environmental legislation, rising costs and increasing pressure from customers, employees and other stakeholders are all increasing the business case for organisations to properly address their environmental impact. A sensible response for any organisation is to address these pressures in a structured manner through the implementation of an Environmental Management System (EMS), which provides a systematic framework for the ongoing management of environmental performance. In terms of meeting client or other stakeholder expectations, a certified EMS is a very robust approach which can be used as firm evidence of the organisationís commitment to the environment, particularly when completing pre-qualification questionnaires and tenders.
A number of options are available for third party EMS certification and we can help you to select, design, implement and maintain the most appropriate and beneficial EMS type for your organisationís circumstances. We take pride in ensuring that our EMS work seeks to add value by focusing on performance improvement rather than bureaucracy. The approach provided is very much bespoke to client needs and can include training delivery, second party auditing, direct on-site consultancy support and also development and updating of key EMS documentation.
We have a long and successful track record of helping organisations, both large and small, across public and private sectors, with implementing ISO 14001, EMAS and/or the BS 8555/Acorn phased approach. The results of our EMS work have helped these organisations to win more business, achieve significant financial savings, reduce risks of pollution and legal non-compliance, and improve their reputation and image as a result. As an increasingly sensitive business issue, tackling environmental performance through a robust EMS makes good commercial sense for any organisation looking to position itself as a strong player in the future business climate.
