Sustainability - frameworks - metrics.


An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a framework that supports an organisation to achieve its environmental goals.

The idea is to enable and encourage consistent review, evaluation, and improvement of the organisation's environmental performance.

The EMS itself does not dictate a level of environmental performance - each organisation’s EMS is tailored to its own objectives and targets.

An example of an EMS is ISO 14001, a set of standards and guidance documents developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
