Environmental management system

Environment

The environmental management system is defined by ISO 14001 and European EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) regulations. It contemplates the organizational structure, planning of activities, responsibilities, procedures and available resources in order to develop, implement, review and maintain an up-to-date and comprehensive environmental policy.

ISO 14001 provides the Spanish Navy with the adequate management instruments to improve sustainable environmental issues without neglecting the economic-related aspects.

The most outstanding advantages for the Spanish Navy of an ISO 14001 certification are:

  • Fulfil with environmental legislation assuring control and implementation of all environmental-related legal requirements.
  • Improve the Spanish Navy image with national and international organizations and the public in general.
  • Improve garbage removal procedures, especially for dangerous products, reducing the generation of debris.
  • Avoid soil, water and air pollution improving the control of harmful emissions and discharges, thus contributing to preserve the environment.
  • Reduce energy use (electricity, fuel, water and raw materials).
  • Avoid sanctions for non-compliance with environmental regulations.
  • Enhance management procedures to avoid environmental risks.
  • Provide a comprehensive working system to meet all planned environmental matters, improving internal communication channels.
  • Help standardize working procedures in the whole Navy structure.
  • Improve maintenance routines to fulfil environmental regulations.
