Design for the Environment: Integrated Environmental Management Systems Partnership
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. This web site for the (historical) DfE IEMS Partnership includes useful publications, information on partners, and a summary of findings and accomplishments.
