In recent years, environmental awareness has grown significantly. Many major companies have responded by establishing an environmental policy and implementing programmes to minimise the impact of their operations on the planet. However, as green issues have attracted more attention, it has become apparent that businesses must show just how effective they are in meeting their stated environmental targets. For this reason, companies are increasingly adopting ISO 14001 to demonstrate and verify their green credentials.

This new, interactive, CD-ROM entitled "ISO 14001 Environmental Management", has been specifically designed to help mariners understand what the ISO 14001 standard is and, most crucially, provide practical help in applying the company's environmental management policy on individual ships. ISO 14001 provides a company wide approach to environmental management and includes a commitment to ongoing improvements in performance.

The course is divided into five modules:-

  • Module 1 covers the main principles that underpin an effective environmental management policy.
  • Module 2 defines environmental aspects and impacts of shipping operations and explains how to identify them.
  • Module 3 shows what is required for the initial environmental review and gives practical tips on how to conduct the review successfully.
  • Module 4 looks at how to set environmental targets and objectives and how to benchmark them.
  • Module 5 considers the measurement and documentation a company needs to be able to demonstrate its compliance with its own environmental policy.

As well as providing an overview of the ISO 14001 process, the course also provides a wealth of practical examples that can be applied directly on board ship. The course can be taken informally without accreditation, but it has been designed to lead to a certified qualification from the Nautical Institute.

The package is aimed at all shipping company personnel who are involved in environmental management, but it will be of particular interest to officers on board ship.
