An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a systematic approach to ensuring that environmental activities of an organization are well managed and continuously improving. For example, an EMS can help an organization better meet its compliance requirements. It can also help an organization use materials & resources more efficiently & streamline operations, thereby minimizing the impacts of missions and ensuring sustainability of missions.
Why are we Implementing EMS?
Presidential Executive Order 13693 directs federal facilities to implement an EMS. The EMS includes measurable environmental goals, objectives and targets, and is based on an appropriate framework. Using the Plan-Do-Check-Act model, MCLB Barstow has designed a system that will help ensure our commitment to environmental excellence.
