The Utah Army National Guard (UTARNG) has established and will maintain an Environmental Management System (eMS). The UTARNG's eMS provides for continuous improvement of its environmental performance using a plan, do, check, and act model. The eMS documents organizational structure, planning activities, responsibilities, practices, procedures, processes and resources for developing, implementing, achieving, reviewing and maintaining environmental programs at UTARNG.
This eMS Manual describes the UTARNG's programs for environmental management and for conducting environmental management system audits. Implementing the programs in this document will fulfill the direction provided in the Environmental Policy (Section 2). This eMS is intended to comply with the standards promulgated by the international Organization for Standardization (ISO). Wording, definitions, requirements, expectations, and specifications from these references appear throughout this eMS Manual in an effort to improve consistency on conformance.
