Everything starts with your environmental assessment:

You determine a set of environmental aspects. Then, you evaluate and segregate the significant from the nonsignificant environmental aspects:

Some of the significant environmental aspects due to the scale of your organization operations are mentioned in the environmental policy, they are very important to improve your organization’s interaction with the environment:

So, the organization decides to develop environmental objectives around:

  • Reducing the number of wastes sent to landfill
  • Reducing the unitary energy consumption
  • Reducing the unitary solvent consumption

Before setting objectives, organizations have to define an environmental policy. A good environmental policy considers the scale and environmental impacts of its activities, products, and services. So, the relevant environmental objectives of an organization must be based on significant environmental aspects and impacts.
