Environmental Management Systems and ISO14001 

EMS 
An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a set of processes and practices that enable a company to reduce its environmental impacts and increase its operating efficiency. An EMS reviews a company's environmental goals, analyses its impacts and legal requirements, sets objectives ad establishes programs to meet them, and ensures employee environmental awareness. 
 
ISO14001 
ISO14001 addresses various aspects of environmental management by providing practical tools for companies to identify and control their environmental impacts and performance. ISO14001 encourages a company to continuously improve its environmental performance through the implementation and development of its EMS. 
Benefits 
Improved identification and understanding of the impacts of the business activities on the environment, resulting in better controls leading to improved environmental performance 
An EMS includes many useful resources including a Legal Register, an Aspect Register / environmental risk assesment and an emergency plan; all of which help to achieve ongoing sustainability 
Increased business opportunities - many large companies and government organisations prefer to work with a business that has an EMS certified to ISO14001 
Stronger environmental performance gives assurance to stakeholders that can improve credibility and reputation 
Organisations can harmonise and streamline significant performance indicators, enabling benchmarking 
Case Study - PCSG 
Earth to Ocean has developed Management Systems and for a variety of clients in a number of sectors. We have recently developed an EMS for our parent company, PCSG, which we have had certified to ISO 14001 by the British Standards Institution (BSI). Our ability to identify the aspects within an organisation's operations enables us to successfully deliver a Management System that results in improved environmental protection, staff awareness, legal compliance and financial savings.
