Since the Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit (UNCED) held in 1992, environmental issues have been drawn to the forefront of organizations’ operations and possibly their reputations. A review of the world’s press often reveals spillages, toxic releases, fires, and other pollution events. There are efficiency opportunities from better use of energy, water and from reducing waste in a systematic way. Participants will receive a template Environmental Management System (EMS) manual for their own use as part of the study materials. This class provides a complete review of the international standard for environmental management, ISO 14001:2015, as well as other environmental management techniques. Over five days, the class works through the PDCA improvement cycle provided by ISO 14001, teaching the tools and techniques of excellent practice. The course includes a week- long practical implementation case study set in the fictional highly-realistic setting of oil products distribution company Melvis Group where the new learning is validated through application.
