Sample text

Asia Environmental Partnership, 1997, p. ) Most of the 30 companies surveyed have implemented EMSs that they feel are more advanced than ISO 14001, and most of them did not see a competitive advantage from ISO 14001 certification. Some did see an advantage, however. For instance, Dr. R. –Asia Environmental Partnership, 1997, p. 81). As these examples illustrate, the implementation of a formal EMS can be the foundation for many of the other facility approaches. An EMS provides a useful framework for implementing integrated facilitywide approaches to environmental issues.

7 ISO members finally reached agreement on the first specific guideline from this family, ISO 14001, in 1996. 8 Like ISO 9000, ISO 14000 calls for a detailed audit of the management processes an organization uses, in this case, to implement a formal EMS. Critics claim ISO 14001 is not as comprehensive as its ISO 9000 predecessors or as demanding as the major voluntary European environmental auditing systems based on ISO 9000. ISO 14001 does not require third-party auditing and does not commit a user to a proactive P2 program.

Therefore, many of these approaches are still somewhat experimental and are evolving. Some companies and some approaches have been more effective than others. Some of these efforts have not been implemented long enough for us to understand their true effects. Effectiveness often depends on the specific application, including the environmental issues addressed, corporate culture, etc. We have tried to identify the successful applications of these approaches that are most applicable to DoD installations.
