5 Fundamentals of an environmental management system
5,1 General
A management system is the framework of policies, processes and the way these are carried out used by organizations to ensure that it can fulfil all the tasks requried to achieve its objectives.
The EMS is an integral part of an organization’s overall management system. It is used to manage an organization’s interactions with the environment in a planned and systematic way. An EMS addresses the impacts of an organization’s activities, products and services on the environment and the relevant needs and expectations of its interested parties. It also considers the effects (threats and opportunities) that the environment might have on the organization. An EMS enables an organization to achieve intended outcomes, including the enhancement of environmental performance, fulfilment of compliance obligations and achievement of environmental objectives.
An effective EMS is founded on the concept of Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA). The PDCA model provides an iterative process used by an organization to achieve continual improvement of the system itself and its intended outcome(s). It can be applied to the EMS as a whole and to each of its elements individually. The approach can be briefly described as follows.
— Plan: establish objectives and processes necessary to deliver results in accordance with the organization’s overall policy.
— Do: implement the processes as planned.
— Check: monitor and measure the effectiveness of processes, considering the organization’s policy commitments, planned actions, objectives and operating criteria, and report the results.
— Act: take actions to continually improve.
The ISO 14001 standard provides a comprehensive framework for environmental management. Figure 1 shows the relationship between PDCA and the framework of ISO 14001.ISO DIS 14005 pdf download.
