Imagine having all your environmental compliance and sustainability information in one place, easily accessible and customizable for the unique needs of each project. Now consider how such a tool would make it easier for you to share relevant information with the subcontractors working on your project. Environmental programs and management systems are the super-tools that can help make this possible. AGC’s free guides will get you started.
Environmental professionals within many different industries use these types of programs and management systems to organize and manage legal requirements as well as sustainability goals. AGC walks you through the steps with online resources for developing a construction-specific environmental program or an environmental management system (EMS) --- supporting environmental compliance and the achievement of environmental or sustainability goals.
Get started developing your company’s program by using the free AGC guides, links to government and other resources and case studies available on AGC’s EMS Toolkit. AGC members helped develop these guides, so that they better address the attributes of a construction firm versus, for example, a manufacturing facility. The first guide is a short, reader-friendly overview of developing an environmental program with tips demonstrating three levels of complexity depending on what would best suit an individual company: the Environmental Program Guide. The second guide is an in-depth resource that gives instruction on developing a comprehensive environmental management system (EMS): the AGC EMS Guide.
AGC hopes you will find the EMS Toolkit a helpful resource; and AGC will continue to develop the resources provided.
