Environmental audits are systematic and objective assessments of the environmental status and performance of properties, facilities, processes, and/or operations. They are a valuable management tool which can be used to identify and assess environmental problems, and initiate corrective actions which ensure compliance with applicable environmental laws and regulations and internal management policies and practices. Environmental audits also can be used to assess the quality of the existing environmental management systems, and to foster additional initiatives to improve the environmental performance of a facility. Environmental audits are reviews of a company’s operations and processes for the purpose of assessing compliance with environmental rules and regulations.
The Honourable High Court therefore thought in the interest of Justice to introduce the Environment Audit Scheme where qualified technical professionals would become a link between the individual industries on one hand and the GPCB & other public authorities as well as association of industries on the other hand; with the added vital elements of accountability and transparency.
