Legislation such as the Kyoto Climate Summit and Local Agenda 21 are effectively forcing governments and companies around the world to become more environmentally conscious and responsible in their operations. Therefore ‘environmental management systems’ are becoming an increasingly important part of companies policies. Accreditation services such as ISO14001 and EMAS are significant of how environmentally friendly a company is, and are very much in demand. An environmental accreditation is representative of good working practices and green awareness.
As well as signalling their environmental friendliness, environmental management systems give companies a chance to reduce waste, lower costs and increase efficiency. Therefore taking care of the environment benefits the company and the planet.
