Our EMS makes it easier to identify the parts of our business that have an impact on the environment, like air pollution, loss of biodiversity, pollution from wastes, resource consumption, noise and vibration, land contamination and water pollution.
We can then establish the activity's associated risk, based on:
- the frequency that the activity occurs
- the severity of the actual or potential impact
- the social sensitivity of the issue
This allows us to identify the activities with the greatest potential impact.
