Environmental Management Systems (EMS)

An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a set of processes and practices that enable an organization to reduce its environmental impacts and increase its operating efficiency. This site provides information and resources related to EMS for small businesses and private industry, as well as local, state and federal agencies. The EPA continues with its progress in developing and maintaining an environmental management system at all of its office and facility operations, focusing on the reduction of the agency's environmental footprint.
