Environmental Management Systems Professor Ergashev A. department of geo-ecology, TSPU

2 "There is enough for everybody's need, but not enough for anybody's greed," said Gandhi.

3 Objectives The students should know what is environment management system. The students should learn the different parts of environment management system They should now the tasks of EMS and EMS elements They should learn about the continuous cycle of EMS

4 Outline EMS definition and overview Elements of EMS
Purpose and Benefits of EMS Continuous cycle of EMS summary

5 What is an environmental management system (EMS)?
Part of an organisation’s management system used to develop and implement its environmental policy and manage its environmental aspects. (AS/NZS ISO 14001:2004 cl. 3.8)

6 What Is An EMS? (cont…) Tool consisting of standardized procedures to reduce our environmental footprint Continuous quality improvement and strategic planning with the goal of reducing environmental impacts Part of an overall management system which includes organizational structure, planning activities, responsibilities, practices, procedures, processes, and resources for achieving environmental policy

7 EMS Updated and more aggressive goals for: Energy efficiency
Renewable energy Water conservation Acquisition Pollution prevention/recycling High performance buildings Fleet management Electronics stewardship

8 EMS Elements Important EMS elements include: Continual improvement
Pollution prevention Compliance Management commitment Formalization Awareness of a systems-based approach

9 Purpose of an EMS An EMS brings together the people, policies, plans, review mechanisms, a nd procedures used to manage environmental issues at a facility or in an organization

10 EMS Cycle of Continuous Improvement

11 The Continuous Cycle Plan Planning, identifying environmental aspects and establishing goals Do Implementing, includes training and operational controls Check Checking, includes monitoring and corrective action Act Reviewing, includes progress reviews and acting to make needed changes

12 Plan Identify aspects and impacts from a facilities activities, products, and services Review legal requirements Set objectives and targets Establish a formal EMS program

13 Do Implementation and Operation: Define roles and responsibilities
Provide EMS training Establish internal and external communication mechanisms Establish document control system Establish operational controls Integrate with or establish emergency preparedness procedures

14 Check Checking and Corrective Action:
Conduct periodic monitoring of environmental performance Identify root causes of findings and conduct corrective and preventive actions Maintain environmental records Conduct periodic EMS audits

15 Act Conduct a periodic senior management review of EMS
Revise policies as needed

16 General Benefits Of An EMS
Easier compliance Use less materials Pollution prevention New partners Increased efficiency Improved morale Enhanced image Fewer mistakes Do more with less Documented procedures and management plan Sustainable program Greater confidence in environmental decision-making Less inspections More help to Bureaus and Offices

17 Critical for EMS Success
Bottom line requirements: EMS is “Everyone’s Management System” Must relate to your organization’s mission Must have senior management commitment Must be consistent with other management systems (e.g., IT, purchasing) in your organization

18 What You Can Do Your organization may already have an have EMS established or have elements of an EMS in place: Training programs (e.g., on-line DOI EMS Awareness Training offered to DOI employees through DOI LEARN) Plans, permits, etc. Inspections, forms, checklists You may be able to contribute to implementing and improving your organization’s EMS

19 What Is An EMS? Implementation Management Review Environmental Policy
Checking/ Corrective Actions Measurement and Monitoring EMS Nonconformance and Records EMS Audits Continuous Improvement Planning Environmental Aspects Compliance Objectives and Targets Environmental Mgmt. Programs Implementation Roles and Responsibilities Training and Communication EMS Document Control Emergency Preparedness and Response

20 In Summary An EMS is the combination of people, policies, procedures, review, and plans to help proactively address environmental issues Proactive environmental management benefits us all by: protecting the health of the surrounding ecosystem, preserving resources for future generations, being a good neighbor, minimizing mission impact due to non-compliance issues, and saving money by decreasing wasted resources
