Environment and Business

The state of the environment is a global public concern as is environmental protection. On a corporate level, many companies are facing increasing pressure to improve their environmental performance. They are being requested to evaluate the environmental impacts of their activities while concurrently improving their environmental programmes. Companies must be proactive and voluntarily take on initiatives to improve environmental management and monitoring. Management tools such as waste minimisation and energy management programmes, good housekeeping practices, impact assessments and environmental auditing should constitute the environmental management system (EMS) of a company.
