Description

ISO 14001 and EMAS (the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) requirements can be daunting for managers and expensive for companies. How to Measure your Company's Environmental Impact is the most cost-effective and easy-to-use environmental review solution for companies in all sectors of the economy. Designed and written by top environmental engineers, and used by top consultants and companies in Europe, this step-by-step manual contains extensive tools for managers to carry out a complete company-wide initial environmental review as a prerequisite for introducing an environmental management system in accordance with ISO 14001 or EMAS. Emphasis is placed on collecting and presenting quantitative data, starting with material and energy flows through the company. The manual provides indicators for energy, transportation and water use, against which to measure your company. The complimentary CD-ROM toolkit includes a template for the environmental review, an inventory tool designed to calculate emissions and the environmental impact of your company's transportation, energy consumption and other activities, and instructions and forms for an environmental failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) - a method for identifying and evaluating environmental impact to determine your company's most significant environmental aspects.
