With the recent developments relating to emissions trading and carbon tax in the Australian Government, environmental compliance is starting to receive increasing attention. We have seen quality and OHS requirements dominate government tenders for several years, with strict environmental compliance also becoming an increasing factor. Environmental certification is not required by the NSW Government until you get into the higher value contracts (>$10M), however they do require environmental planning to be included in project planning. Is your business ready to be ahead of the competition with the increasing demands from an environmentally conscious market place? An effective environmental management system can save you money, increase staff moral and reduce your impact on the environment.
The Environmental Management System standard (ISO14001:2004) is based on identifying and controlling environmental risks (aspects and impacts) to achieve the companies environmental policy and ensure compliance with legal and other requirements. An environmental management system can differentiate your business from the competition and assist you in expanding into new areas of work.
