In preparing your report you should focus on:
Firstly, independent and analytical thinking–you should demonstrate understanding of relevant course material while also engaging with it on a more critical basis. In particular, the essay should reflect on the following:
Secondly, what benefits will the organisation receive if they implement a formal externally audited Environmental Management System?
Thirdly, consider what external (PESTLE) factors are most likely to have an impact now and in the future of the company’s operations? Can you identify risks and opportunities that will be best managed with the implementation of an EMS?

Fourthly, how will the organisation integrate its legal and other requirements in the implementation of the EMS?
What social political and economic trends affect the company chosen and/or their sector? How will these be incorporated into the EMS?
What barriers might the organisation face in implementation?
What do you think is the most important element of an EMS and why?
How can successful environmental performance be measured?
Do the changes introduced through ISO14001:2015 help organisations to achieve further improvements and if so how?
