Plan-Do-Check Act Model for EMS
Plan-Do-Check Act Model for EMS ISO 14001:2015
The approach which determines an EMS is founded on the concept of Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA). This model provides a constant process that allows organizations to achieve ongoing improvement. PDCAs are not only applied to the EMS overall, but to each of its individual elements.
Plan-Do-Check Act is short for:
Plan: establishing environmental goals and processes that are necessary to achieve results in conformity with the organization’s environmental policy.
Do: Take action on the planned process.
Check: Monitoring and measuring the process established against the environmental policy.
Act: Taking actions in order to continually improve the EMS.
