Environmental Management (Systems)

Effective environmental management and Environmental Management Systems (EMS) enable a business to manage risks and factors that impact on its performance and the environment. Our team has experience in assisting businesses to implement and certify to best practice EMS standards, including ISO 14001 and BS 8555. Groundwork also provides the CIWEM accredited Practical Environmental Management (PEM) course which is ideally suited to individuals seeking to develop the skills and knowledge required to assess, manage and action environmental improvements in their work place.

Environmental Information Services

Keeping up to date with environmental best practice, legislation and emerging technologies is an essential, but often time consuming task for businesses. Our services are designed to raise your awareness and understanding of environmental, Health�& Safety issues, without overloading you. We achieve this by offering information in a number of different ways, including a phone and email helpline, a monthly newsletter, information sheets and environmental legislation updates.

Environmental Reviews � Identify Your Impacts and Opportunities

An environmental review will provide you with an independent assessment of the ways and extent to which your business activities impact the environment. It also seeks to highlight any potential risks and opportunities related to your environmental performance. We offer two types of review:

  • A�baseline review ��gives you a benchmark against which you can compare past or future performance�
  • A single issue review � focuses on an area of your choosing, for example waste management, energy efficiency or water consumption.

Training and Awareness Courses

Our courses are designed to give your staff the knowledge and confidence they require to adopt, maintain and communicate environmental good practice. Groundwork offers a range of short courses, from environmental awareness raising seminars to topics such as Corporate Social Responsibility and Environmental Management Systems.�


Whether you need in-depth guidance on resource efficiency, greening your supply chain, implementing an Environmental Management System or just wish to touch base on best practice, we will tailor our service to meet your requirements.
