An environmental management system that follows this question is built from the bottom up; by asking what is possible. Despite the fact that the approach differs fundamentally from ISO, such a system fully meets the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard. The approach ensures realistic goals and objectives and prevents that promises are made that the company cannot keep. This results in:
- Solutions that are more effective,
- An effective environmental management system,
- A better handle on costs,
- Greater social acceptance.
A short conversation may be long enough for giving adequate advice on environmental management systems, but usually it takes more time. A single conversation is sufficient to confirm that you have already taken the right steps or to conclude that my advice has no added value for your organization. Otherwise, a short conversation could be the basis for a follow-up meeting.
