Environmental Management Systems– Preventive rather than compliance
When the company decided to go 'green' that is, decides to intgrate environemntal considerations with the company's amis and objectives, they have two options majorly, one is to control or comply to the environemenal rules and regulations and try to reduce the impact of the pollution they create on the environment by treating it in different manners. However, the better way is to go preventive, that is, using such methods and technique that does not create pollution only, so that you dont have to make expensive measures to reduce the pollution as the pollution is not created in the first place. This could be achieved by having environmental management systems in the company where everyone in the company is committed to this plan. Here, the new products are made according to the environmental friendly procedures and restructing the current processes and modifying the products, so that such materials are used that are not environmentally degrading. Thus, it is always better to go preventive as it is not only better for the environemnt but also is cost-effective for the company.
