Answer:

Criteria used for evaluation of environmental aspects should reflect type, size and complexity of your business. Meaning that, if you have some small company that doesn't have some big impact on the environment, you can use only one criteria. On the other hand, if you are big company with great impact on the environment, you should use several criteria for determining significance of your environmental aspect.

Our Procedure for Identification and Evaluation of Environmental Aspects and Risks https://advisera.com/14001academy/documentation/procedure-for-identification-and-evaluation-of-environmental-aspects/ uses four criteria for evaluation of environmental aspects and they all combined provide information on whether the aspect is significant or not.

Criteria that we use are:
- Criteria related to probabi lity (frequency) of aspects and their impact
- Criteria related to scale of impact and consequences
- Criteria related to time of recovery
- Criteria related to the reach of impact
