Title:
Environmental Management Systems: A Quick-Start Method for Selecting EMS Priorities

Abstract:
Too often, companies shelve or lose interest in the full EMS because the process can be lengthy, tedious, and involved. Often the initial results of an earnestly begun EMS results in little success—which can discourage the company and, perhaps, lead to an abandonment of the program. This Indiana Clean Manufacturing Technology and Safe Materials Institute (CMTI) P2 Brief suggests a method to "quick-start" the priorities to establish a developing EMS program. This method can be used by EMS advocates to quickly demonstrate the value a full and formal EMS can bring to a company.
