Many of the best and most successful companies are no longer content to do the minimum required to achieve compliance with environmental regulations. Instead, a new standard of environmental excellence has arisen. A high-quality environmental system is now seen both as a means to regulatory compliance and as a very cost-effective way of increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of operations in general. In this way, the environmental audit often serves as a significant driver for improvement within the overall management system. Auditing for Environmental Quality Leadership details these new techniques and practices in environmental auditing and shows how their place in a Total Quality Environmental Management System can help companies achieve environmental excellence and a competitive advantage.
