EMS scheme

UKWA has launched a partnership scheme with WYG to train and support members through an environmental management system (EMS) implementation process

A good EMS will deliver measurable benefits that differentiate your organisation and therefore generate more business, says UKWA’s Michael Davison.

WYG’s environmental team, led by Paul Burr, has an extensive track record in helping businesses in a variety of sectors with EMS implementation.

Paul Burr commented: Recent Defra research measured average annual cost savings of £4,875 per £million of turnover per business for 31 small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) which have implemented a formal EMS.

In addition to reduced costs, the majority of SMEs in the study pointed to the value of ISO 14001 certification in helping to underpin and increase sales. ISO 14001 is becoming a ‘ticket to win business’ as more clients demand evidence of robust environmental management through pre-qualification questionnaires and formal tenders.
