Techniques For Environmental Assessment And management (TEAM)

Course overview

Dynamic internal and external drivers make it very imperative for organisations to establish and maintain procedures for identifying the environmental aspects of their activities, products and services; the essence is to determine those aspects which have or can have significant impacts on the environment, so that appropriate measures can be put in place to mitigate any negative impacts as much as possible.
