UF/TREEO has worked with several utilities and municipalities to assist them in developing an EMS. An EMS offers an integrated approach to the management and measurement of environmental practices and activities. Developing an EMS will increase the scope beyond just the environment to create a relationship between natural resources, business activities, people and community issues and the triple bottom-line for the organization; ‘people, planet and profit’. An organization that is guided by sustainability goals will focus on issues critical to the mission of the organization.
