Environmental management is a multi-stakeholder, multifaceted activity for most organisations. Like risk management, it can also be an area where supposition as opposed to fact, can cloud the issue.
An Assurity Consulting environmental management review is the first step in working to produce a realistic agenda and business case for environmental improvement or understanding how your current strategy is working for you and your business. Taking away the supposition, it examines the facts and processes in place at your business and relates them to what you want to achieve and report.
It can further provide the starting point for this looking to implement an ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System) or other means of managing and accessing performance.
Our qualified team of assessors/environmental auditors will review your management of, and the significance of, the impacts your organisation has on the environment, both direct and indirect, including:
- Direct impacts;
- Emissions to air;
- Emissions to water;
- Waste management;
- Contaminated land/land use;
- Natural resource use;
- Local issues;
- Transport issues;
- Risk of environmental accidents;
- Indirect impacts;
- Contractors; and
- Corporate Social Responsibility (applicable to environmental issues).
From this, we will produce a report considering the environmental issues that apply to your operations, baselining where you currently are, setting some clear objectives, and developing the planning process.
So, whether you are looking at developing a more systematic and controlled approach to your environmental management or looking at how effective your current management is Assurity Consulting has the answer.
