An environmental review provides a snapshot of how an organisation’s activities, products and processes interact with the environment. The review takes account of existing management structures and provides a baseline assessment of current activities and processes against which future environmental improvements and performance can be measured. This may include legislation that is not being adhered to, processes that could be causing harm to the environment and opportunities for improving resource efficiency. It may also identify areas where early intervention could reduce environmental impacts and improve performance. This topic explains the scope of a baseline environmental review, how to plan and schedule the review process and the role of managers and staff in undertaking the review.
