Abstract

Environmental management systems (EMSs) are intended to formalize procedures for managing and reducing environmental impacts. The last few decades of the 20th century have witnessed a growing awareness of not only the severity but also the diversity of environmental problems. Indian business is relatively young. Industrialization practically started after independence. The objective of the study is to give an overall introduction to Environmental Management System practices in India. The current paper focuses on need of EMS in Indian industry, issues associated with the EMS practices, benefits of practicing the EMS a brief discussion on ISO 14000 standards and other related aspects of EMS. Keywords: EMS, ISO 14000, Environmental Problems. Environmental management can be described as a methodology by which organizations acting in a structured manner assess their operations to ensure that they are functioning in an environmentally legitimate way. This study seeks to investigate barriers of environmental management systems implementation in Ghana. In all, fifty three environmental representatives were surveyed and the results show that the top most important factors hindering the implementation of environmental management implementation were: implementation cost and “too much paper work”, the cost of certification, the quality of consultants, the time involved and the exposure of the organizations to regulatory bodies. Lack of human resources, the understanding of the system, the effect of environmental management system on the existing structure and its intended benefits do not seem to be barriers in India.
