EMS Projects

Organization(s) New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services
Project Description DES' Voluntary EMS Program began winding down in the fall of 2001. Under a policy to encourage the use of EMSs, DES is developing a strategic plan to promote comprehensive, pro-active environmental management by businesses, and is considering a reward/recognition program similar in concept to the EPA National Performance Track program. For more information visit: www.des.state.nh.us/factsheets/co/co-11.htm NH DES continues to participate in national research into the effectiveness of EMS programs. Five companies, located in the NH Seacoast area, completed the DES-provided EMS implementation training. The companies will provide periodic updates on how the use of EMS is changing their activities and environmental performance. DES circulated a project report for public comment. Reports and other information on the national research into EMSs and their effectiveness can be found at http://www.eli.org/isopilots.htm. Also see the website of the Multi-State Working Group on EMSs at www.mswg.org. Research, conceived by the Multi-State Working Group on EMSs, was funded by US EPA and carried out by the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and the Environmental Law Institute. The national research project has been releasing additional reports on the work. These, and more information on the national research, can be found at http://www.eli.org/isopilots.htm.
