Getting Started with Environmental Management Systems

An EMS is a system of processes and practices that allow an organization to reduce their environmental impacts while increasing their operating efficiency. It details procedures, plans for continual improvement, establishes benchmarks, and sets future goals. Each EMS is tailor-made for a business's unique structures and goals.
An environmental management system takes anywhere from a number of weeks to a few months to implement, depending on the size and complexity of the project.
ISO 14001 is globally known and respected throughout many industries and environmental agencies. This robust system is internationally recognized, provides the highest level of credibility, and brings you additional benefits by proving your organization or facility is trying everything it can to better their environmental performance

NRMCA Green-Star EMS

Industry-specific EMS systems exist, such as the Green-Star EMS standard which evaluates environmental aspects which are unique to the concrete industry. 

Developing an environmental management system for your concrete plant that you can actually use and obtain real benefits from is our goal for your organization. We've worked with concrete producers across the US and internationally to develop programs that are easy to understand and actually work. We know the environmental issues the concrete industry faces, and we design your EMS in a way that actually helps both your operation and the environment.

  • We know the concrete industry. We've been active participants in the National Ready Mix Concrete Association, National Precast Concrete Association, and numerous state concrete associations for over 20 years. Our consultants developed the NRMCA Green-Star environmental management system program, and teach the NRMCA Environmental Course every year. We know the concrete industry better than any other environmental firm out there. We'll help you create a program that sets your concrete facility up to succeed.
  • We'll work with your staff towards achievable goals. Whether you need help with the whole process, or just fine-tuning your aspects & impacts, we'll work with your staff to discover strengths and weaknesses your facility and operation can take advantage of. Our goal is to develop a realistic environmental management system your staff can embrace, use, and understand.
  • We train your employees on your new program. Your concrete plant is going to need employee buy-in for its NRMCA Green-Star environmental management system. We'll provide hands-on training to educate your staff on the details of implementing and adhering to your program. We don't give you wishy-washy ideals to follow. We'll give you tangible training, with real-life examples, so your staff understands what the purpose of the system is.
