An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a set of processes and practices that enable an organization to reduce its environmental impacts and increase its operating efficiency. This page provides information on EPA New England's EMS for our regional office, which is housed in the John W. McCormack Building. The building was originally completed in 1933 and is considered a classic example of Art Deco building design. It was a product of the Public Buildings Act of 1926. In 2009, the building was historically restored and renovated. Current tenants include EPA, U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, Trustees of the Bankruptcy Courts and the U.S. Department of Education.

The Environmental Policy for EPA's Boston Office is "Zero Waste Zero Harm." Our EMS helps us to focus on the greening of our fleet of vehicles, as well as the chemicals used to clean the building, our use of renewable power, the energy efficiency of our operations, and our recycling rate. Below are the current EMS Programs and Procedures, related material and contacts.
