This is a comprehensive workbook for organizations of all sizes. It can be used by a single person in a small organization or by an environmental committee or task group in a larger organization.
By the end of this workbook you will have taken the first step towards developing a responsible environmental management system (EMS). You will have developed a sound environmental policy.
A good policy, however, is only the first step towards a well- implemented EMS. So the workbook will also introduce you to some of the basic concepts of environmental management.
This workbook may be used in conjunction with other CSA and ISO Standards and Guidelines (see Appendix C).
