Environmental Management System (EMS) Policy Statement
Executive Order 13148, 'Greening the Government Through Leadership in Environmental Management,' requires all Federal agencies to implement an Environmental Management System (EMS).
An EMS is not another environmental program - it is a set of processes and practices that enable an organization to reduce its environmental impacts, increase its operating efficiency and provides the framework for systematically ensuring environmental requirements are met while supporting mission readiness.
The U.S. Navy's EMS employs a cycle of policy, planning, implementation and operation, evaluation and corrective actions and management review. The Navy's EMS goal is to continually improve environmental performance. Additional information can be found at the Navy's EMS web-site:
