This book explains how an organization can use a management system to both control and improve its environmental performance. It provides guidance in building the environmental management system (EMS) in support of the organization’s operations---linking the management system to the requirements of ISO 14001 to support third-party certification to ISO 14001:2015. Included in the text are best practices as well as common pitfalls and weaknesses the author has observed in various organizations. He is an environmental auditor and EMS internal auditor trainer and consultant. He has audited EMSs of over 100 companies to ISO 14001. For those organizations already certified to ISO 14001:2004, the book highlights the changes required to upgrade to the new 2015 version. In addition, included on an accompanying CD are comprehensive check sheets to be used by internal auditors in auditing an EMS's conformance to ISO 14001:2015.

Implementing an Environmental Management System (EMS) has become a crucial consideration for large organizations. This book offers insight to practitioners and professional students as to why they have been developed, how they are implemented and the barriers that can impact on their effectiveness. A practical, experience-based text written by leading consultants and researchers, the book explores the drivers that have led to the development of environmental strategies and the benefits of formulating a complete EMS. The book examines the way in which EMSs are structured to ensure that a company achieves continuous improvement in environmental performance. Alongside practical advice for businesses that wish to achieve accreditation, the book addresses key issues to be aware of to ensure optimum benefits, different strategies that companies may adopt to establish an EMS and the challenges that arise when trying to integrate an EMS into the business strategy. Also included is a review of the ways in which academics try to categorize and predict the effectiveness of these different approaches to EMS using modelling tools. Finally, case studies are presented to demonstrate examples of companies that have implemented their own EMS, the different approaches that they have taken and the resulting issues that have emerged. This is essential reading for all environmental practitioners as well as students of environmental management and business.

The design and implementation of an ISO 14001 environmental management system (EMS) need not be complicated or costly, and this book focuses on getting a basic yet effective EMS in place with minimal effort so that the organization can move quickly towards the environmental performance improvements that will be needed to meet the growing international demand for corporate environmental stewardship. The real benefit of ISO 14001 is that it can significantly improve an organization's environmental performance while greatly improving its bottom line at the same time. Unfortunately, most companies that have implemented ISO 14001 have not yet moved beyond compliance and have not yet realized these dual benefits. In order to support the goal of quick and easy ISO 14001 implementation, dozens of tools, checklists, procedure templates, and spreadsheets applicable to organizations of all sizes are provided on an accompanying CD-ROM. These tools not only speed the design and implementation of the EMS, they also provide for efficient and effective ongoing maintenance of the system.

ISO 14001 Environmental Systems Handbook Second Edition outlines the scope and purpose of the standard, making it accessible to all. The author begins by explaining the concepts of the standard, which sets the tone for a practical guide to implementation of an ISO 14000-compliant environmental management system, which also covers the consultant's and auditor's perspective. The case studies from industries that have actually undergone the process have been updated to include information on their progress toward environmental objectives in the 18-24 months following implementation. A new case study from a service organisation ( a car lease company) will be added. Finally there is input from training organisations and certification and accreditation bodies to assist with trouble-shooting and assessment. Additional information is also included on international legislative issues. Comparisons with ISO 9000 will also be fully updated to reflect revisions to this standard. The book will offer the reader a range of options for implementation, and guidance on which is the best option to suit the particular organisation's culture.
