Environmental Management Offshore Courses - Online

Increasingly, companies are integrating environmental management systems into their business structures. The introduction of ISO 14001 and the European Union Eco-Management & Audit Scheme (EMAS) provide a formal structure for environmental management which can be independently verified.

This allows the international community, insurers, the public and other stakeholders to have confidence that the business unit is meeting its environmental responsibilities.
