This RIRDC report updates information developed for the Independent Panel of the Pathways to Industry EMS programme in 2005. It draws together a status report of environmental management system (EMS) activity underway in 2006 around Australia across industries and regions.
The report is for government bodies responsible for policy development and programme management of EMS activities, and those who have been involved in the programmes. It is a 2006 snapshot capturing most of the EMS activity in Australia, and highlights the international context. It provides an opportunity for reflection on the ground covered to date and will help decision makers assess Australian EMS programmes.
