What is G-MW's Environmental Management System about?
As concern grows for continually improving the quality of the environment, organisations are increasingly tuning their attention into the environmental impacts of their activities. The environmental performance of an organisation is of importance to both internal and external stakeholders. An Environmental Management System (EMS) provides a systematic management approach to review and improve operations for better environmental performance. It helps companies better meet legal requirements and is designed to integrate the management of environmental risks into daily business practices. Achieving sound environmental performance requires organisational commitment to a systematic approach and to continual improvement of an EMS.

The EMS supports G-MW’s Environment Policy Statement and provides the framework and tools for employees to manage environmental risks, meet legal and other obligations, improve business performance and strengthen relationships with customers. Regular surveillance audits ensure that the organisation maintains its commitment and certification.
