Introduction to Environmental Management Systems
Increasingly, CANSO is observing a greater desire for Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) to implement global systems that assist them to manage the impact their business and operations have on the environment. Recognising the need to support ANSPs to manage the environmental expectations placed upon them, CANSO has developed this Introduction to Environmental Management Systems as a preliminary information package for ANSPs seeking guidance on what is required to establish an industry recognised Environmental Management System (EMS). CANSO acknowledges that many of its members are already advanced in their ability to accurately manage environmental issues, however we recognise that further information is required if all members are to create consistent management practices. This document is designed to explain the benefits, the key elements, and best practice when seeking to implement an EMS.
