This Guide is intended to support and facilitate the development of environmental management systems (EMS) among small and medium-sized organizations. The Guide explains to develop and implement an effective EMS and how it can support an organization's mission and goals. The Guide uses the ISO 14001 Standard as a model for an EMS. Section 1 describes the many benefits of an EMS and how it can help your organization to compete and prosper in today's global marketplace. Section 2 summarizes the overall management systems concepts. Section 3 describes the overall process for building an EMS and provides recommendations for planning the overall EMS development effort. Section 4 provides detailed guidance on how your EMS should be designed and implemented. Section 5 describes the process for registering an EMS and selecting a registrar. Section 6 discusses other sources of assistance your organization can use to build and sustain its EMS. Appendices provide case studies, sample environmental policies, other sources of information, and information on EMS standards. In addition, the Tool Kit provides sample EMS procedures and other tools that your organization can tailor to fit its EMS needs.
