An effective Environment Management System can significantly improve the way in which a manufacturer operates.
Firstly, an Environmental Management System or EMS can help to reduce an organisation’s impact on the environment and its environmental liability by ensuring that legislation is adhered to.
From a business performance viewpoint, an Environment Management System can also help a manufacturer to improve efficiency and identify areas where cost savings can be made.
Many organisations now insist on dealing only with suppliers who demonstrate that they have a sound Environment Management System in place. As such, an Environmental Management System or EMS can help retain existing customers and secure new business.
Furthermore, an Environment Management System can ensure that an organisation is looked upon more favourably by the environmentally aware younger generation. In doing so, an Environment Management System can significantly enhance your brand image and make your business more attractive as a potential employer.
In addition, manufacturers who have implemented an Environment Management System are likely to find it easier to secure new investment and benefit from lower insurance premiums.
