Environmental Management Systems User Guide for Transportation Practitioners (2008)

This comprehensive user guide is designed for Canadian jurisdictions when making decisions on Environmental Management System (EMS) framework planning, design, implementation, maintenance and related costs (including operations and maintenance implications). The Guide was the basis of a highly successful session at the recent TAC Conference in Toronto.

EMS is comprised of a set of management procedures that allows an organization to analyze, control and reduce the environmental impact of its activities, products and services, and operate with greater efficiency and control. The Guide includes outlines of EMS best practices, success stories and lessons learned.

The Guide is divided into two parts:

  • A “How-to” for developing an EMS in an organization
  • Examples and Case Studies; practical experience from agencies in developing and implementing an EMS

Clear symbols and tables are used throughout to emphasize key points, help focus information and provide examples, tools and advice.
