Top management has an invaluable role in communicating internally the importance of the environmental management system (EMS), in promoting and in financing the EMS. ISO 14001:2015, clause 5.1, gives some help in answering to your question:

  • Top management is responsible for issuing and keeping updated a strategic orientation for the EMS, translating those priorities into a set of environmental objectives
  • Top management is responsible for providing resources for the EMS, has a unique role in communicating the importance of the EMS not just by words but by its agenda, by the time used in analyzing performance and asking for improvement.
