The EMS is part of the overall management system that addresses the impact of an organization’s activities, products, and services on the environment. An EMS allows an organization to identify and take control of the environmental impacts that it generates and is a tool to improve the efficiency of organizational activities, products, and services so that they will benefit the entire organization. The end goal is to make the organization’s day-to-day operations more sustainable. Sustainability can mean practically everything from saving costs, improved product reputation, engaged employees and business partners, and building resilience against the ever-increasing rate of uncertainty and complexity in today’s world. More importantly, it can also improve relationships with suppliers and customers as a result of more consistent management and reduced environmental impacts of organizations.
The Asian Productivity Organization (APO), in cooperation with the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), is implementing a self-learning e-course on July 1 and ends on December 31, 2017 (6 months), with the objective of enabling participants to learn about ISO 14001: Environmental Management System (EMS) and understand how an EMS should be implemented in an organization utilizing the Green Productivity (GP) approach.
Target participants are environment/green productivity/energy management personnel, trainers or consultants, and senior/mid-level managerial and technical personnel from industry in the environmental field.
The structured self-learning e-course will be implemented through the APO’s dedicated e-learning website: http://www.eapo-tokyo.org. The participants can register on this website and create their own accounts. Ongoing registration starts on July 1 and will end at the closing hours of December 31, 2017.
As the National Productivity Organization, the DAP invites the public to register and participate in this FREE learning opportunity.
