An environmental management system is a process for identifying and managing the environmental impacts, risks and opportunities arising from an activity with an aim of achieving continuous improvement.
This report provides a basic description of environmental management systems (EMSs), the programmes supporting their adoption, some analysis of the outcomes so far of those programmes and some recommendations for improvement in development and application of such systems.

This RIRDC report is intended to be of benefit to all responsible for policy development and programme management in government, those who have been involved in government funded programmes and those who are active contributors in any way to these programmes or attendant arrangements, including landholders, other researchers and other programme managers and businesses that might benefit from well directed EMS activity in Australia.
