What is correlation about organization context & needs and expectations with environmental aspect?

Answer:

For example, an organization has determined these environmental aspects:

https://www.screencast.com/users/ccruz5284/folders/Default/media/be180b68-ea2f-4ca1-84a5-7cd4abf08150

When that organization determined its internal issues registered this one:

  • our wastewater treatment facility is becoming more and more incapable of treating all the wastewater due to strong production increase.

When that organization determined its interested parties and their needs and expectations registered these two:

  • neighbors from the local community are a relevant interested party and they expect, they hope that the river beach can continue to be used and not be harmed by polluting discharges
  • local authorities expect than environmental legislation is complied. 

Can you see a risk emerging from that internal issue here? Can you see how the interested parties make that risk critical? And all that related with environmental aspects.

It is mandatory to synchronize? If yes, how to synchronize it?

Answer:

No, it is not mandatory to synchronize, only if you found relevant interactions that can affect your relationship with the environment in significant ways. I hope I demonstrated above how to do it.

And how about risk & opportunity? What is difference with environmental aspect?

I hope the example and figure above showed the difference. Environmental aspects is about how your organization interacts with the environment. Risks and opportunities are about a potential deviation from the expected due to the presence of uncertainty.

Does a risk and opportunity have to assessed (quantitative)? 

Risks and opportunities should be evaluated but it is not mandatory to do it through a quantitative scale
