4.3.1 Environmental aspects Identify all Environmental Aspects & Impacts Evaluate for its Significance Significance Criteria Minor Aspects Keeping Records Significant Aspect Operational Control (CONTROL) Objectives & Target Setting (IMPROVE)
4.3 Planning 4.3.2 Legal & other requirements n establish & maintain a procedure to identify & access to legal & other requirements to which the organisation subscribes n applicable to the environmental aspects of its activities, products or services. (SEE EXAMPLE 3)
Definition Objectives n Overall environmental goal arising from environmental policy Targets n Detailed performance requirement n quantified where practicable n set in order to achieve objectives
4.3 Planning 4.3.3 Objectives & Targets n establish & maintain documented environmental objectives & targets at each function & level within the organisation n consider the legal & other requirements, significant environmental aspects, technological options n consistent with the environmental policy, including the commitment to prevention of pollution.
4.3 Planning 4.3.4 Environmental management programme(s) establish & maintain programmes for achieving its objectives & target n include designation of responsibility at each relevant function & level n means & time-frame (SEE EXAMPLE 4)
4.4 Implementation & operation 4.4.1 Structure & responsibility n Roles, responsibility & authorities shall be defined, documented & communicated n Provides resources essential to the implementation & control of the EMS –Specialised skills –technology –financial resources
4.4 Implementation & operation 4.4.1 Structure & responsibility n Appoint management representatives who shall have defined roles, responsibilities & authority for : –ensure that EMS requirements are established, implemented & maintained according to ISO 14001 –reporting on the performance of the EMS to top management
4.4 Implementation & operation 4.4.2 Training, awareness & competence n identify training needs n establish & maintain procedures to makes its staff: –aware of the importance of conformance with EMS requirement –sign. Environmental impacts of their work –their roles & responsibility n staff whose work may create sign. Environmental impact shall be competent & received appropriate training.
4.4 Implementation & operation 4.4.3 Communication Establish & maintain procedures for: n internal communication n receiving, documenting & responding to relevant communication from external interested parties. n External communication on its sign. Environmental aspects & record its decision (SEE EXAMPLE 5)
4.4 Implementation & operation 4.4.4 Environmental management system documentation n shall establish & maintain information in paper or electronic form –describe the core elements of the management system –provide direction to related documentation (SEE EXAMPLE 6 & 7)
4.4 Implementation & operation 4.4.4 Environmental management system documentation Environmental Policy 1 2 3 4 Environmental Management Guide Hotel Environmental Procedures Operational Control Procedures Environmental Records
4.4 Implementation & operation 4.4.5 Document control n establish & maintain procedures for controlling all documents can be located periodically reviewed & revise current version are readily available at all location obsolete documents are promptly removed
4.4 Implementation & operation 4.4.6 Operational control n identify those activities that associated with significant environmental aspects & control them : –documented procedures –stipulating operating criteria in procedures –communicate relevant procedures & requirements to suppliers & contractors (SEE EXAMPLE 8)

4.5 Checking & corrective action 4.5.1 Monitoring & measurement n establish & maintain documented procedures to monitor & measure the activities with sign. Environmental impact n recording of information to track –performance –operational controls –environmental objectives & targets –compliance with environmental legislation
4.5 Checking & corrective action 4.5.2 Nonconformance & corrective & preventive action n handle & investigate nonconformance n take action to mitigate any impacts n initiate corrective & preventive action –record any changes in documented procedures (SEE EXAMPLE 9)

EMS Environmental Benefits n Fully-utilise resources & reduce utility cost –fully-utilise natural resources –reduce energy consumption n Creditability for loans & insurance –Hotel with lower environmental risks can obtain project financing more easily, at more favourable conditions, & insurance at lower cost.
EMS Environmental Benefits n Compliance to Environmental Legislation –manage environmental aspects effectively can reduce legal liability to prosecution n Prevent accidents –identify potential for & respond to accidents & emergency situation. –Preventing & mitigating the environmental impacts that may be associated with them –reduce loss or damage in case of accident
EMS Environmental Benefits n Meet guest expectation –As increase in public awareness on Environmental protection, guests who are environmental conscious will be more likely to choose & patronise the hotel with sound environmental performance. –EMS helps to heighten guest awareness of the hotel’s management skills & serve as a basis for quality service.
