An Environmental Management System is a system for ensuring that an organisation’s significant environmental impacts are controlled and minimized. ISO14001 is the de facto standard for accreditation.
Environmental Efficiency can help you implement an Environmental Management System. Our service includes carrying out base line audits, identifying corrective actions, writing procedures and manuals, staff training and carrying out mock certification audits. Grant aid is available from Enterprise Ireland, Invest NI and other bodies and we can advise you on this.
Where organisations tender to large customers and the public sector (especially the UK public sector) the procurement rules give preference to organisations that have an Environmental Management System. Thus a certified Environmental Management System may make the difference between getting an order or not.
