Monitoring Environmental Performance
Setting Environmental Targets
The Environmental Improvement Programme
What is the purpose of having such a programme?
The Environmental Improvement Programme (EIP) is not a formal term and some
companies may call it something different such as a Management Improvement
programme. For the purpose of this module, it will be termed EIP from herein.
The EIP should be designed to set the objective, which has been the focus of
Unit 2, and should incorporate the actions and the targets set to achieve the
objective. This in turn will enable the company to clearly see if the goals that
they are setting themselves, as identified within their environmental policy are
being achieved, and in turn, whether their EMS is operating effectively.
There are many formats that an improvement programme may take.
