Like a financial management system monitors expenditure and income and enables regular checks of a company's financial performance, an EMS monitors environmental performance. An EMS integrates environmental management into a company's daily operations, long term planning and other quality management systems.

The most important component of an EMS is organizational commitment. For an effective EMS to be developed and implemented, you need commitment from the very top of the organization, as well as all staff. Further examples of components that should be considered when developing an EMS are:
  • Environmental Policy
  • Environmental Impact Identification
  • Objectives and Targets
  • Consultation
  • Operational and Emergency Procedures
  • Environmental Management Plan
  • Documentation
  • Responsibilities and Reporting Structure:
