About this book

Avoiding environmental issues is no longer an option - increasing pressure from consumers, and environmental legislation are forcing businesses to take a more critical view of their environmental management procedures. The development of an environmental management plan is an essential business activity that helps organise, direct and control operational activities, and plan for future environmental risk. Once created, an environmental management plan is an ongoing asset that requires regular updating and enables benchmarking against company targets and competitors. Environmental Management Plans Demystified takes you step-by-step through the process and procedures required to implement a successful plan. Its clear, accessible style allows you to achieve ISO 14001 compliance with the minimum of effort. Examples of standard documentation, case studies, flowcharts, and checklists are included, as well as useful hints to avoid resource-wasting pitfalls. If you want to install a successful environmental management plan that will minimise environmental risk and create a competitive advantage for your company, this book is an essential practical guide for both the absolute beginner and the experienced practitioner.
