Most companies can damage their reputation and profit making abilities by not managing their environmental risks and opportunities. ESP works with businesses to develop bespoke, tailored Environmental Management Systems (EMS) to various ISO standards (including 14001:2015 and EMAS).
We understand that all companies sit uniquely in their environments and each organisation’s activities will have differing potential environmental impacts on their surroundings. As a result, we configure the management system to the context of the organisation. We use a systematic approach to assess the company’s aspects and impacts in their environment (whether local, regional, national or International).
Our risk matrix provides a single powerful management tool for controlling environmental issues. It allows any potential environmental impact to be linked to the appropriate legislation, procedures, targets or audits against any area of the business.
Auditing should promote and deliver improvement to the company’s processes and activities. This requires auditors to have a working knowledge and understanding of the needs of stakeholders/investors, the sectors and markets that companies work in and the associated environmental risks as a result of their activities. Here at ESP, we believe in using audits to help our clients to achieve their business objectives, meet performances goals and manage their risks.
We can undertake an audit and gap analysis against an existing Environmental Management System as part of a continuous improvement programme, ensuring that the management systems in place are always compliant with all relevant legislation and compliance obligations.
