The goal of the Environmental Management System

The goal of the Environmental Management System

The Environmental Management System (EMS) is an international standard that was developed to provide organizations with a structure to protect the environment, and to respond to the ever-changing environmental conditions while considering, and finding a balance with socio-economic needs. It specifies requirements that allow organizations to accomplish the intended outcomes it sets for its EMS.

A methodical approach to EMS provides top management with the information necessary to build success over the long term while also creating options for sustainable development, such as:

  • safeguarding the environment by working to prevent or mitigate negative environmental impacts
  • working to assist the organization in the attainment of compliance obligations;
  • strengthening environmental performance;
  • regulating or influencing the process of which your organization’s products and services are designed, manufactured, distributed, consumed and also disposed of, using a system that helps prevent environmental impacts from being shifted elsewhere within the process
  • attaining financial and operational benefits that may be a product of implementing environmentally sound alternatives that strengthen the organization’s marketing
  • communicating environmental information to interested parties
  • communicating environmental information to relevant interested parties.

This International Standard, as all International Standards, is not designed to increase or disrupt an organization’s legal requirements.
