In the Plan part , the organization examines the context and identifies the risks and then determines the actions and objectives to address them. In this part, the environmental aspects of the organization are examined, including: emissions into the atmosphere, water discharges, releases into the soil, consumption of resources and materials, noise emissions, waste and by-products, space and landscape .

In part Do, the manual describes how the organization controls operational activities related to environmental aspects, and how it pursues environmental objectives. In this part, the manual introduces the environmental procedures with which the organisation, in reference to each polluting factor, implements controls: authorization aspects , abatement of pollutants, prevention measures, sampling, emergency management .

The Check part of the manual explains how the organization monitors and measures its performance in relation to the conformity of the activities performed, the effectiveness of the environmental procedures in achieving the objectives, the adequacy of the system procedures in providing the supports and the suitability of documented information.

Management procedures

The system procedures, also commonly referred to as management procedures, are those that implement the requirements of the points of the ISO 14001:2015 standard. The PRO kit system procedures cover all the requirements of the standard by addressing:


With the analysis of the context and environmental aspects and compliance obligations, risk assessment, determination of environmental actions and objectives


With the development of the environmental policy, the determination of top management commitments and the attribution of roles, responsibilities and authorities in the system

The support

By overseeing the processes dedicated to making technical, financial (PNRR), human (skill and awareness), communication and documented information resources available

Operational activities

With the supervision of business processes (organisational activities) in which actions aimed at containing polluting factors and environmental objectives are integrated

Performance evaluation

With monitoring, measurement and analysis of polluting aspects (effectiveness)

With the monitoring, performed with the audit, of non-conformities (conformities)

With the analysis, in the management review, of the system’s ability to comply with the requirements (adequacy)

With the evaluation of the adaptation of the documentary aspects to the company reality (suitability)

With the analysis and treatment of deviations and non-conformities and with the development of improvement actions


“Human Resources Procedures” Section

The procedures that govern the human resources management processes, in the D&I system, are developed to achieve the D&I objectives.

The environmental management system forms are that part of the documents dedicated to giving objective evidence of compliance with the procedures and recording the information and data relating to its actual functioning.

Some forms are in Word™ format and provide a compact and clearly visible overall representation of all process data .

The user of the system, thanks to the illustrations that highlight the correlation between the exposed data , has a clear picture of every aspect of the system and its operation in real time .

Other forms are rendered in Excel™ format to facilitate practical and immediate use of the data and apply the necessary calculations to environmental controls automatically , without resorting to the wasteful use of printing.

All forms are strictly correlated, through appropriate coding, to the respective system and environmental procedures
