International Standard for the implementation of environmental management system




Taking into account the increasing interest for continuous improvement of the environment, enterprises of all types and sizes focus on the environmental impacts deriving from their activities and the products and services they provide.

The implementation of an environmental management system can help a business prove to the interesting parties, such as the country’s corresponding authorities, the local society, the clients and employees, that:

  • The business’s top management is committed to protecting the environment
  • Emphasis is given to environmental pollution prevention
  • Compliance with environmental legislation is documented
  • The management system design includes the process of constant improvement.


In addition to the abovementioned, financial benefits may derive from the implementation of an environmental management system. A business whose management system includes an environmental management system has the framework necessary for the integration and balance of economic and environmental interest. The business has the opportunity to link the environmental goals and objectives with specific economic results, in order to achieve optimal resources’ availability from both economic and environmental spectrum.


More analytically, potential benefits that can derive from the implementation of an environmental management system are presented below.
