Section Meeting: Got Risk? Risk Assessment Tools for ISO 14001: 2015

In 2015, ISO 9001 was not the only management system standard revised to include risk and opportunities requirements. The latest revision of ISO 14001 also now includes risk and opportunity requirements for an environmental management system (EMS). But how can your EMS meet these requirements? Join us for a presentation of one company’s efforts to incorporate risk in the EMS. Specific discussion points include: developing and managing an EMS risk assessment process as part of a larger risk portfolio, risk tools and techniques adopted for determining environmental aspect significance, developing tools to include sustainability efforts in the EMS risk assessment process, and developing tools to communicate EMS risk assessment results to stakeholders.
