How can I stay competitive in the environmentally conscious business market?

If you want to stay competitive in the environmentally conscious business market, you can make use of this support package for ISO 14001 EMS for Construction SMEs



This User Manual is a step-by-step handbook for local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to develop an environmental management system (EMS) using "ready-made" ISO 14001 Templates. Easy-to-use and practical tips are provided to guide you through the EMS development and implementation process. The user manual is divided into four chapters:

About This Support Package - introduces the support package and how it should be used, summarising the ISO 14001 EMS concepts and providing an overview of the development and implementation approach.
EMS Planning - describes the process for planning an EMS, including guidance on how to undertake an "Initial Environmental Review" as the first step.
EMS Development and Implementation - using the "Plan, Do, Check, Act" (PDCA) model, provides detailed guidance on how each element of the EMS should be designed and documented, and describes how the templates could be incorporated to develop and implement your own EMS.
ISO 14001 EMS Certification Process - explains the general ISO 14001 certification process and steps involved in obtaining ISO 14001 certification.

We recommend that you read through the manual before starting to develop your EMS, and continue to refer to it during the development and implementation process. See also the Generic ISO 14001 EMS Templates and Practical Examples for further guidance.
