GLRPPR Sector Resource: Aligning National Environmental Policy Act Processes With Environmental Management Systems: A Guide for NEPA and EMS Practitioners

Title:
Aligning National Environmental Policy Act Processes With Environmental Management Systems: A Guide for NEPA and EMS Practitioners

Abstract:
This guide (20 pp., pdf)provides practitioners with a tool to improve NEPA implementation and achieve the environmental sustainability goals laid out in NEPA and Executive Order 13423. The guide provides examples of how NEPA and EMS together can help federal agencies more effectively manage their environmental responsibilities. For example, identifying environmental aspects in the development of an EMS can build on aspects identified in previous NEPA analyses. Conversely, a new NEPA analysis can consider the identified environmental aspects in an EMS when assessing potential environmental impacts of a proposed future action.
