Environmental Management

Environmental Management

The transition to a low-carbon economy is a global challenge. Many governments set targets to reduce carbon emissions or achieve carbon neutrality. IT is an enabler for environmental and cultural change that will help governments to achieve their targets: for example, through enabling tele and video conferencing, and remote and home working. However, IT is also a major user of energy and natural resources. Green IT refers to environmentally sustainable computing and printers are carried out in sustainable ways that do not have a negative impact on the environment.

The ISO 140001 series of standards for an environmental management system is designed to assure internal and external stakeholders that the organisation is an environmentally responsible orgaisation. It enables an organisation of any size or type to:

  • Identify and control the environmental impact of its activities, products or services.
  • Improve its environmental performance continually
  • Implement a systematic approach to setting and achieving environmental objectives and targets, and then demonstrating that they have been achieved.
