SRC/OAS Project Environmental Performance Measurable results of the environmental management system, related to an organization’s control of its environmental aspects, based on its environmental policy, objectives and targets
SRC/OAS Project Environmental Performance Evaluation This is a process and a tool for the internal administration designed to give a continuous amount of reliable and validated information to determine if the organization complies with a previous determined criteria developed by the management of the organization
SRC/OAS Project Environmental Performance Evaluation vs. AUDITS The Environmental Performance Evaluation and the Environmental Audits help the management of an organization to evaluate the environmental performance and helps to identify the areas of improvement that are required
SRC/OAS Project Definitions 2.3 Environmental Indicator (EI): specific expression that gives information of the local, regional, national or global environmental conditions
SRC/OAS Project DEFINITIONS Environmental performance: Results of the administration of the environmental aspects of the organization Note 1 Environmental performance has a different definition in this norm and in the ISO 14001:1996 and ISO 14004:1996. Note 2 In the environmental management system the results obtained are related to the policies, the objectives and the goals of the organization
SRC/OAS Project DEFINITIONS 2.8 Environmental performance criteria: environmental objective, goal or any other level of performance established by the Head of the organization and is applicable for the evaluation of the environmental performance
SRC/OAS Project DEFINITIONS 2.9 Evaluation of the environmental performance : process to facilitate the decisions of the management in respect to the environmental performance of the organization, through the selection of indicators, compilation and analysis of data, evaluation of information according to performance criteria, reports and communications and the periodic improvement of this process.
SRC/OAS Project DEFINITIONS 2.10 Environmental performance indicator : specific expression that gives information on the environmental performance of an organization.
SRC/OAS Project DEFINITIONS 2.10.1 Management Performance Indicator: indicator of the environmental performance that gives information on the effort of the Head to influence the environmental performance of an organization.
SRC/OAS Project DEFINITIONS 2.10.2 Operational performance indicator : indicator of the environmental performance that gives information on the operations of an organization
SRC/OAS Project Selection of the indicators according to the public An organization that discharges treated water to a river can select indicators for the Environmental Performance Evaluation: Example Total quantity of a specific contaminant discharged per year (local community).
SRC/OAS Project Selection of the indicators according to the public Concentration of contaminants in the residual water (legal authorities, and regulators). Quantity of contaminant discharged per amount of produced product (Directors and consumers)
SRC/OAS Project Selection of the indicators according to the public Change in the quantity of contaminants discharged per year in relation to the investment in cleaner technologies or improvements in the process (Directors and investors).
SRC/OAS Project Management Performance Indicators Gives information on the capacity and the efforts of the organization to deal with issues such as: Training Legal requirements Assignment and efficient utilization of the resources.
SRC/OAS Project Management Performance Indicators Administration of the environmental costs Purchases Product development Documentation or corrective actions that influence or could influence the environmental performance (EP)
SRC/OAS Project Uses of Management Performance Indicators Implementation and effectiveness of various programmes in environmental management Actions of the management that influence the EP Comply with specific objectives, legal requirements and other requirements Financial costs and benefits
SRC/OAS Project Management Performance Indicators - aims/objectives Predict changes in the performance. Identify the causes when the actual performance exceeds or do not comply with environmental criteria Identify opportunities for preventative actions
SRC/OAS Project Examples of Management Performance Indicators Implementation of policies and procedures Number of objectives and goals reached Number of units within the organization that reach the objectives and environmental goals Degree of implementation of the managerial or operational practices
SRC/OAS Project Examples of Management Performance Indicators Number of implemented initiatives for the prevention of contamination Number of managerial levels with specific environmental responsibilities Number of employees with work descriptions that have environmental requirements
SRC/OAS Project Examples of Management Performance Indicators # of employees that participate in environmental programs (e.g. suggestions, recycling, cleaning initiatives and others) # of employees that receive awards or recognition in relation with the total number of employees that participate
SRC/OAS Project Examples of Management Performance Indicators # of employees trained related with the number of employees that needed training # of trained contractors Levels of understanding obtained by the participants during the formation Number of suggestions for the improvement of the environmental issues given by the employees
SRC/OAS Project Examples of Management Performance Indicator Compliance with requirements or expectations Degree of compliance with regulations Degree of compliance with suppliers of services regarding requirements and specific expectations of the organization´s contracts
SRC/OAS Project Example of Management Performance Indicators Time to correct environmental incidents Costs attributed to sanctions or fines Number of emergency simulations Number of completed audits in relation to the planned ones
SRC/OAS Project Examples of Management Performance Indicators Financial performance Funds for research and development Relationship with the community # of programmes in environmental education Progress of activities in local remedial
SRC/OAS Project Role of Management Performance Indicators Predict changes in performance Identifies the causes when the actual performance exceeds or does not comply with the proper environmental criteria Identifies opportunities for preventative actions.
SRC/OAS Project Examples of Operational Performance Indicators Materials Quantity of used materials per unit of product Quantity of processed materials, recycled or reused Quantity of packaging materials discharged or reused per unit of product
SRC/OAS Project Operational Performance Indicators - related issues Input: materials, energy and services The design, installation, operation (including emergency events and routine operations) and the maintenance of the physical infrastructure and organization´s equipments.
SRC/OAS Project Operational Performance Indicators - related issues Outcome: products, services, residues and emissions Example of products: main, secondary, recycled and reused materials Example of residues: solids, liquids, dangerous, not dangerous recyclable or reusable Example of emissions: to the air, water, or soil, noise, vibrations, heat, radiation or light.
SRC/OAS Project Example of Operational Performance Indicators Energy Quantity of energy consumed per year or per unit of product. Quantity of saved energy through energy preservation programmes Quantity of each type of energy consumed.
SRC/OAS Project Examples of Operational Performance Indicators Services that support the operations Quantity of dangerous materials used from suppliers of contracted services. Quantity or type of waste produced per supplier of contracted services.
SRC/OAS Project Examples of Operational Performance Indicators Physical infrastructure and equipments Number of pieces of equipment with designed parts for easy assemble, recycle or reuse. Number of hours per year that a specific part is in operation
SRC/OAS Project Examples of Operational Performance Indicators Supply and delivery Average consumption of fuel of the vehicles fleet. Number of business trips that did not had to be done because or other ways of communication.
SRC/OAS Project Examples of Operational Performance Indicators Products Proportion of defective products. Number of units of secondary products generated per product units. Number of energy units consumed during the use of the product
SRC/OAS Project Examples of the Operational Performance Indicators Residues Quantity of discharged products per year or per unit of product. Quantity of dangerous discharged, recycled or reused products per year Quantity of wastes stored in a place
SRC/OAS Project Examples of Operational Performance Indicators Emissions Quantity of specific emissions per year Quantity of wasted energy emitted to the air. Quantity of emissions send to air with a potential hazard to the ozone layer
