Environmental Management System

About ISO 14001 EMS for Electrical/Electronic Sector SMEs


The EPD has been encouraging the industrial sector, and all private organisations, to improve their environmental performance since 1994. A major focus of these efforts is the adoption of the ISO 14001 environmental management system.

As part of our promotion efforts, we have organised joint seminars and workshops with the Hong Kong Productivity Council and the Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency, among others. In 2001, we also organised two larger events. A seminar on environmental management and green procurement was held with Environment Canada, and a separate gathering was organised on corporate environmental performance. These were well-attended and well-received.

In January 2005, the EPD launched a seminar and disseminated a support package on Environmental Management Information and ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) tailored made for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the electrical/electronic (E/E) sector. They aim to help SMEs in the E/E sector understand the local environmental pressure from different stakeholders and stay competitive in the environmentally world business market.

The seminar was organised by the EPD with support from the then Environment, Transport & Works Bureau(ETWB), Hong Kong Electronic Industries Association, Philips Consumer Electronics, Fook Tin Technologies Ltd., SGS Hong Kong, Trade & Industry Department and Business Environment Council (

More than 200 participants from the E/E sector attended a seminar on an Environmental Management Information and ISO 14001 EMS support package for the E/E sector organized by EPD in January 2005. Mr. Raistlin Lau, the Acting Deputy Secretary for the then  ETWB, gave a welcoming address.
