This advanced course introduces the new ISO 14001 standard for environmental management systems. It includes a history and developmental context review of the ISO 14001 standard. This class reviews the specific elements and processes that form certifiable 14001 environmental management systems. Using an example, students develop a complete program that integrates the 14001 requirements with the existing strategic management methods of an organization. This program demonstrates how to use the 14001 framework as a proactive and systematic approach to environmental management. Class discussions include developing an environmental policy, specifying objectives and targets, implementing an environmental management program, monitoring and measuring program results, and reviewing the program to ensure continual improvement.
