Environmental Management

Decarbonated have experience of implementing Environmental Management Systems in a wide range of organisations.  The adoption of formal Environmental Management Systems has increased significantly in recent times, as seen in research published by IEMA, reporting a 28% increase in ISO 14001 adoption.  Many organisations are seeing the value of adopting an EMS as a way to generate real business value in a number of ways:

  •     Reduce costs.
  •     Increase sales through customer interest in environmental credentials.
  •     Ensure legal compliance.
  •     Enhance reputation through the improvement in environmental performance.

  •     ISO 14001 – International Standard for Environmental Management Systems.  Internationally renowned standard adopted by all types of businesses.
  •     EMAS – Eco-Management and Audit Scheme.  EU voluntary scheme which includes a public Environmental Reporting element.
