Environmental Management/Environmental Management System Plan

profileLacevero

 

Addresses Outcome #1 

  • Develop and implement management plans that incorporate scientific principles and that comply with environmental laws and ethical principles in a team environment 

Environmental Management plans should always be integrative, and often are centered on an environmental management system (EMS).

PLEASE READ LINK:

The Overseas Private Investment Corporation shared the key elements of EMS here: https://www3.opic.gov/environment/eia/greenfields/Chapter%2010%20-%20Environmental%20Management%20Plan.pdf

To creatively determine how well you understand the essence of EMS, please provide your assessment of the following elements in an environmental management plan for your home or work, including both building and grounds:

  • -Assessing environmental effects (environmental aspects)
  • -Compliance with laws / regulations (legal and other requirements) – please include a qualitative 2x2 risk assessment as part of this section
  • -Setting environmental objectives and targets
  • -Environmental management program(s)
  • -Structure and responsibility
  • -Training, awareness and competence

Each of the key elements above is worth 10 points for a total of 60 points. Please remember that you only need to provide aspects that are relevant to your home or work! For example, you do not need stack monitoring or effluent monitoring programs for your home!

The other criteria, each worth 10 points, are:

  • Clear introduction to your home or work so we have a good overview of location, size, and neighborhood of both building and grounds.
  • Clear format with subtopics under each key element as appropriate.
  • Clear and concise writing with topic sentence followed by supporting statements.
  • List of appropriate references in APA format, cited as needed.

The length of the Environmental Management Plan can be flexible given the variety of work and home situations we might find. I am hoping you can write a plan within 3000 words. 

See the grading rubric for this project for more specific details on each of the grading criteria.
