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.

Garry Cornell has more than 25 years’ experience working in Environmental Management as a senior manager, consultant, and certification auditor. He has worked with businesses internationally, in a range of different industries, helping them to implement and improve their environmental management standards. This book aims to give you an explanation of what is typically required by the ISO 14001 standard, taking technical terminology and “Standard Speak” and interpreting it into something understandable. Although this book is written primarily for people who are new to environmental management, or new to implementing ISO 14001, it can be used by a much wider audience. The book was written for those of you who will take responsibility for driving the development of environmental management in your business. This book can also be used if you are an auditor, especially an internal auditor, to understand more about what you should expect to find in a good EMS. It provides advice on how to conduct internal audits, but you can also refer to different sections to understand what the clauses of the standard really expect from the business. If you are a CEO or CTO, this book will help you to understand what sort of commitment is required to implement ISO 14001. It will also show you how to turn that initial thought into reality within your business, including the costs and benefits you will likely see in return. This book is also useful to those who have more experience in environmental management, because the changes in the ISO 14001:2015 version are explained throughout this book. In addition to containing a section dedicated to understanding the changes, the book was written to reflect what the new standard requires and how to implement those changes. Consultants can also gain knowledge from the explanation of the changes in the ISO 14001:2015 standard and, because the book not only explains what should happen, it also provides ideas and techniques for how to make those things happen. This will help you guide your clients through some of the human issues they might encounter when trying to drive change, in addition to the technicalities. Although the book guides you through the certification process, you can use this book whether or not you are planning certification. Maybe you just want to benefit from better environmental management, and from implementing a really good EMS.
