Environmental

Workplace environmental management is the process of managing the environmental interactions associated with an organisation’s activities. To manage these interactions effectively, in line with legislation and best practice, a comprehensive environmental management system needs to be developed.

An environmental management system is a framework that helps businesses achieve their environmental goals by applying consistent controls to their operations.

Environmental management systems are ideal for organisations wanting to improve their environmental performance, increase demand for products and services, reduce costs, achieve environmental compliance and promote a positive image.

By outsourcing your environmental requirements to Agility you can be confident that we will:

  1. Assist you in achieving ISO 14001 with your environmental management programme.
  2. Provide you with key performance metrics and accountability to manage environmental risks.

Our workplace environmental management system contains a number of principle elements, such as:

  • An environmental policy – a clear statement of intent showing a commitment to continuous improvement
  • Objective and target setting – development of a set of clear and attainable environmental objectives and targets specific to the organisation
  • Environmental aspect and impact register – a register containing all of the organisation’s environmental interactions and significant risks
  • Environmental arrangements – the environmental management system can contain as many or as few environmental arrangements to fulfil the organisation’s needs and environmental risks
  • Auditing – environmental auditing and compliance checksheets to demonstrate that environmental records and controls are being undertaken, by whom and when

Once your environmental management system has been implemented, our environmental consultants will provide full training and support to ensure your new management system is fully utilised.
