Environmental Management Quick and Easy: Creating an Effective ISO 14001 EMS in Half the Time
The design and implementation of an ISO 14001 environmental management system (EMS) need not be complicated or costly, and this book focuses on getting a basic yet effective EMS in place with minimal effort so that the organization can move quickly towards the environmental performance improvements that will be needed to meet the growing international demand for corporate environmental stewardship. The real benefit of ISO 14001 is that it can significantly improve an organization's environmental performance while greatly improving its bottom line at the same time. Unfortunately, most companies that have implemented ISO 14001 have not yet moved beyond compliance and have not yet realized these dual benefits. In order to support the goal of quick and easy ISO 14001 implementation, dozens of tools, checklists, procedure templates, and spreadsheets applicable to organizations of all sizes are provided on an accompanying CD-ROM. These tools not only speed the design and implementation of the EMS, they also provide for efficient and effective ongoing maintenance of the system.
