Environmental Management Systems (Ems) - Control Instrument of the Impact of the Organization Activities on the Environment

Abstract

Due to the ability to create and use technology, the human being has found various ways to transform the resources of the Earth in all sorts of new materials, equipment and energy sources. At least since the last industrial revolution until now, each generation has added more technology to the received legacy, but at the same time, left the planet in a far more degraded state than the inherited condition.

Within these changes, small and medium enterprises (SME) in their capacity as pillars of the economic development of a nation, have been compelled to change their previous strategies. Implementing an Environmental Management Systems (EMS) can be seen as the only way to connect the activities of the organization to the environmental requirements, in a context in which the orientation of the demand towards environmental markets is becoming increasingly apparent.
