Environmental Management Systems


Environmental Management Systems

With today’s interconnected world and engaged public, industry, government, and universities each face ever-increasing scrutiny over their environmental practices. “Going green” has become more than the politically correct thing to do; it is good business.

Eco-friendly businesses, no matter the industry, are more likely to gain recognition and customers based on their leadership in applying environmental practices. It is no secret that most companies are developing plans to move toward a greener workplace. The reasons why many organizations stand behind the decision to “go-green” include:

  • Consumers demand best environmental practices that align with their values
  • Leaders at public companies want to avoid negative environmental publicity that could damage their reputation in the long-term
  • Taxpayers are demanding that public institutions are environmentally conscientious.
  • Municipal leaders actively seek out and reward environmentally responsible corporate citizens
  • Employees often prefer working for “green” companies and those that make themselves leaders in their industry
  • Responsible environmental plans and practices reassure both investors, insurers and regulators

Aegis’ Environmental Management System (EMS) program helps you identify and evaluate your company’s environmental program needs and specific requirements.

Aegis works closely with you to develop an effective EMS program applicable to any level of your organization and shepherds the program through the required approval and implementation.

Whether implementing a new program or refining an existing program, the guidance of Aegis’ hands-on EMS experience is proven to deliver success throughout an organization and reinforce commitment to your environmental goals.

Our staff has excellent knowledge and experience in environmental regulatory compliance (the foundation of an EMS program) and environmental assessments and audits, that are the critical measurement tools of any EMS.

Development of an EMS program does not have to be a daunting task. The EMS program should be viewed as a series of levels or steps, depending on your needs, ranging from the most basic to a full ISO 14001 program.
