What is an EMS? – Core elements and Basic Principles of ISO 14001 Certification

An Environmental Management System is a set of policies and procedures designed to help organizations:

  • Reduce negative environmental impact
  • Improve efficiency and operational effectiveness

An EMS is a set of guidelines for continuous improvement, based on proven methods of business process management and optimization just like quality management system.

The main goal of the organization’s environment management system has to be designed and developed is that the system may be functioning well to grow the environmental performance. The ISO 14001:2015 certification of EMS as per specification recognized standards has been introduced.

There are the six core elements of an EMS that helps in achieving the ISO 14001 Certification:

  • Environmental policy
  • Planning
  • Implementation
  • Study & correct
  • Management review
  • Continuous improvement

1.Environmental policy

This is a clearly outline the environmental policy of business’s objectives and targets, in the context of their environmental policy. It includes principles on environmental sustainability as well as performance indicators relating to the Environmental Management System.

Internally and Externally Policy should always be clearly communicated, as well as fully implemented.

2.Planning

In planning, make complete, thorough plans for implementing the EMS. With clear, thorough planning, organizations stand to assess the environmental impact of all operations. The main purpose of planning is to develop a process for identifying compliance requirements, documenting targets and objectives, and creating a plan for deployment.

3.Implementation

After planning step, current step involves the execution of those plans. This step will also incorporate adjustments and even building of new processes to adapt to changing requirements. It’s important that organizations clearly define, document, and communicate their implementation procedures for purposes of training and compliance contingency. Well-documented processes also make it easier to improve upon those processes. The Scope of Implementation section also includes emergency response planning and preparedness.

4.Study & correct

After implementing step which is the most basic EMS, observe how it functions, and make corrections or optimizations as needed. Study & correct step involves the management of new and existing procedures to make sure KPIs are hit and that the EMS is functioning as it should be. Organizations will benefit from establishing a system for documentation as well as conducting audits of the EMS.

5.Management review

Management review section is same as study & correct but it’s important to have a differentiated review of the EMS conducted by management, to ensure that everything is functioning within the scope of successful performance. Management will be best positioned to assess this kind of effectiveness.

6.Continuous improvement

Every EMS will utilize principles of continuous improvement to enable organizations to optimize all aspects of the system. Through establishment of targets and objectives in the context of wider environmental purposes, organizations can achieve continuous process improvement with methods.

Benefits of ISO 14001 EMS

Environment Management System (EMS) refers to a system used by an Organisation to manage its activities, product or services in such a way to minimize or eliminate the adverse impacts on environment. More explicitly, the EMS is that part of the overall management system viz. organizational structure, planning activities, responsibilities, practices, procedures, processes and resources which are necessary for developing, implementing, reviewing and maintaining the organisation’s environmental policy.

ISO 14001 EMS

ISO 14001 EMS

 

ISO 14000 series is voluntary and based on international consensus as 65 countries are participating in the standards development process. The standards are generic, i.e. applicable to both manufacturing and service organisation, in public and private sectors. They say what should be done by an organisation to manage the impact on the environment of its activities, but do not dictate how to do it.

The overall aim of this international standard ISO 14001 is to support environmental protection and prevention of pollution in balance with socio – economic needs. However, it is not intended to be used to create non-tariff trade barriers or to increase or change an organisation’s legal obligations.

This international standard does not incorporate occupational health and safety management system elements. Nevertheless, the certification / registration process will only be applicable to aspects of the environmental management system. The company has to make targets related to environment issues for long run and achievement for the same. Also provisions for emergency so that environment is no where affected by the company.
