If you want to implement an environmental management system (EMS) perhaps the following steps could be useful for an organization:

  • Setup a project sponsor, a project manager and a project team. Determine the scope of the EMS. Ensure top management support, get training. Designing and implementing an environmental management system (EMS) implies being knowledgeable about ISO 14001:2015.
  • As a first step determine environmental risks and opportunities, environmental aspects and impacts, and compliance obligations and the state of compliance.

  • Then, determine significant risks and opportunities and significant aspects and impacts.
  • Define an environmental policy and objectives. From there, it is implementation by developing action plans to improve the interaction with the environment.
  • Then, perform an internal audit and the management review. There you can decide if your organization is ready for a certification audit.
