BS is almost here. BS makes particular reference to small and medium sized enterprises SMEs but is applicable to any organization, regardless of the nature of the business activity undertaken, location or level of maturity. It outlines an implementation process that can be undertaken in up to six separate phases and allows for phased acknowledgement of progress towards full EMS implementation. It also includes advice on the integration and use of environmental performance evaluation techniques during the implementation process and the co-ordination of an EMS with other management systems.

Sustainability BS - Certification - Implementation of Environmental Management Systems Customers, consumers and shareholders are increasingly demanding environmentally responsible products and services. They expect you to comply with environmental standards and demonstrate your commitment to the environment in the day-to-day operations of your company. Clients increasingly want proof of this commitment and following the BS guideline is your opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to eco-ethics. BS provides an effective way for organizations to spread the costs of implementing a generic environmental management system. In addition to improved legal compliance, many of our clients report increased employee morale that results from knowing that you are environmentally aware. BS has six key phases, each of which has been divided into a number of key stages. If you choose BS certification, your organization works towards achieving the criteria defined for each of the stages, which in turn form the basis of the inspection for each phase.
