Planning for your business is an important part of ensuring your business' success. Likewise, when you decide to make your business more environmentally friendly, you can expand your business plan to include environmental management strategies.
Planning tools such as conducting an environmental audit and developing an Environmental Management System (EMS) is a useful tool in focusing your environmental strategies on key areas of your business.
An environmental audit helps you see how your business affects the environment and sets a benchmark for improvement. You can also use an EMS in conjunction with your audit to introduce processes and procedures that meet your planned environmental strategies for business improvement.
