Environmental Management Systems


This International Standard describes the elements of an environmental management system and provides organizations with guidance on how to establish, implement, maintain or improve an environmental management system. Such a system can substantially enhance an organization's ability to anticipate, identify and manage its interactions with the environment, meet its environmental objectives and ensure ongoing compliance with applicable legal requirements and with other requirements to which the organization subscribes.

The environmental performance of an organization is of importance to internal  interested parties (employees, stake holders) and external interested parties (Society or locality where your organization is located, Local, district, state and central government Agencies, Customers etc). Achieving sound environmental performance requires organizational commitment to a systematic approach and to continual improvement of an environmental management system (EMS).


The design of an environmental management system is an ongoing and interactive process. The structure, responsibilities, practices, procedures, processes and resources for implementing environmental policies, objectives and targets can be coordinated with existing efforts in other areas (e.g. operations, finance, quality, occupational health and safety).
