From Ecomapping to an environmental management system EMAS or ISO 14001
The challenge was to adapt the proven concepts of Eco-mapping into a certifiable EMAS and ISO 14001 without loosing the simplicity .The EMS process still had to be adult learning oriented and needs to be cost effective
The continuation of Eco-mapping and its transfiguration into a environmental management system required several new enhancements and improvements
This toolbox is called EMASeasy and contains among other features
Time and costs
If a company has done some environmental work already in its own way the workload with Ecomapping to be in compliance with ISO 14001 is done within a week maximum
External document audits and site audits can be done within a day easily
The procedures required by ISO 14001 fit on a double page and most of the relevant instructions are oral and informal or visual.
The environmental declaration is compact and delivers the basic and really needed information.
