Environmental management provides organisations with a method to systematically manage and improve the environmental aspects of their production processes. It helps organisations to achieve their environmental obligations and performance goals. The International Standards Organisation (ISO) defines an EMS as ’the part of the overall management system that includes organizational structure, planning activities, responsibilities, practices, procedures, processes and resources for developing, implementing, achieving, reviewing and maintaining the environmental policy’. Environmental management can be applied to all economic sectors such as retail, manufacturing, tourism, services.
