You can say that your proposal for implementation starts with a Gap Analysis to establish a baseline, a starting point. Then, you can prepare an implementation plan to determine:

  • Context and interested parties 
  • Risks and opportunities 
  • Aspects and impacts and
  • Compliance obligations

From there you can define an environmental policy and objectives, and evaluate priorities and design a set of action plans to act upon:

  • Critical risks and opportunities 
  • Significant environmental impacts 
  • Relevant compliance obligations and 
  • Environmental objectives.

While implementing the action plans training will be identified and given, procedures will be written, monitoring plans will be designed and implemented. Then, an internal audit will be done, and a management review will take place to evaluate what was done and prepare the next management cycle iteration.

The following material will provide you more information about aspects and impacts:
