An EMP (Environmental management plan) acts as a framework for streamlining the environment related processes. EMP not only increases the production efficiency and decreases waste production, but also prepares the organization for any unexpected environmental hazard. GA assists organizations in structuring an EOP (Environmental Operations Plan), which takes into stock all the environment issues related with routine organizational activities. A planned investment towards EOP helps in the crafting of annual EMP with precision and cost-effective manner.
EMP is the bedrock of a great Corporate Sustainability report – which is so indispensable in this age of corporate and environmental governance and where stakeholders are keen observers of corporate responsibility manifesto. Majority of the EMPs will factor the following environmental aspects of an organization -
- In depth factoring of your organization’s location, activities, materials, products
- Your site’s risk of causing land, air and water pollution and what are the checks and balances to handle them
- Organizational processes, regulations and programs that ensure a mitigation or control of the environmental risks
- Capabilities, technologies and programs in place to handle hazardous and toxic residue
Environmental impact assessment (EIA) is undertaken as a precursor and mandatory activity before the EMP is inked. The focus of EIA is to address potential environmental hazards, issues and human implications at an early stage of project planning. EIA/EMP is instrumental in assisting the planners and government authorities in the decision making process by identifying the key impacts/issues and formulating mitigation measures. Preserving the existing human living conditions and maintaining the Eco-balance of mother nature for future generations is one of the key emphasis for the EMP. GA experts work on-site with you to take a ground level stock of the above factors, so that a humane and environmentally conscious EMP can be designed and implemented.
