Environmental Management Systems (EMS)

Federal agencies are required by Executive Order 13148 to have EMSs at appropriate facilities by December 31, 2005. An EMS can help an organization not just reduce its impact on the environment, but also to improve its efficiency of operations. An EMS is a set of processes and practices used to achieve these ends.

To learn more about EPA's Environmental Management System for Federal agencies and facilities, please see the Environmental Management Systems Publications page.

For general EMS information affecting Federal agencies, see US EPA's Environmental Management Systems site.

Please also visit FedCenter for additional EMS materials produced by other federal agencies.
