Opportunity Assessment....

They both use matrix assessment....?
What the different......

Can you give me advise or you have some example doc let me know....

Answer:

The main difference between environmental aspects and risks and opportunities is in the scope of assessment. Environmental aspects are assessed within the processes and are directly linked to environmental impacts. Risks and opportunities assessment covers entire context of the organization and they can be related to performance of the EMS (Environmental Management System) or possibilities for improvement of the EMS and not only to environmental aspects.

The second important difference is that environmental aspect assessment requires methodology while risks and opportunities can be assessed in some free form like brainstorming session and only key risks and opportunities need to be documented.

Finally, significant environmental aspects require operational contro ls which are continual and ongoing activities while risks and opportunities require actions to address them which can be one time activity. For more information, see: ISO 14001 risks and opportunities vs. environmental aspects https://advisera.com/14001academy/blog/2016/06/06/iso-14001-risks-and-opportunities-vs-environmental-aspects/
