GLRPPR Sector Resource: Safer Choice/Design for the Environment (DfE): Integrated Environmental Management Systems Implementation Guide

Title:
Safer Choice/Design for the Environment (DfE): Integrated Environmental Management Systems Implementation Guide

Abstract:
An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a set of management tools and principles that allow companies to systematically manage their environmental and health safety matters. It is a framework for continual planning, implementing, reviewing, and improving a business' operations to integrate environmental concerns into daily business practices. DfE's Integrated Environmental Management System (IEMS) took the IS 14001 framework - the international standard for EMSs - several steps further by incorporating process redesign, chemical risk management, use of cleaner technologies, and pollution prevention.
