  • Environmental Management Systems

  • This Guide is intended to support and facilitate the development of environmental management systems (EMS) among small and medium-sized organizations. The Guide explains how you can develop and implement an effective EMS and how it can support your organization's mission and goals. Development of an EMS is a voluntary approach to improving your organization's environmental performance. The final report on NSF International's EMS Demonstration Project summarizes the EMS implementation experiences of 18 organizations of a variety of types and sizes. The project, which used the ISO 14001 Standard as the model for an EMS, was funded through a two-year grant from EPA's Office of Wastewater Management (October 1994 - September 1996).
