Book chapter, 2016
To ensure environmental performance at a desired level in a company, an understanding of the potential impacts and their sources and a work structure that promotes the desired outcome are necessary. Policies and strategies must be known and accepted in the company, and the organisational structure must be able to handle the challenges. Environmental management systems provide a means to manage the work process as well as communicate the company's environmental policy, goals and work processes. The majority of this book addresses impacts and their sources and technical solutions to counteract these impacts. In this chapter, the management of environmental work is discussed.
