This International Standard gives guidance on the design and use of environmental performance evaluation (EPE) within an organization. It is applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size, location and complexity. This International Standard does not establish environmental performance levels. It is not intended for use as a specification standard for certification or registration purposes or for the establishment of any other environmental management system (EMS) conformity requirements. The guidance in this document can be used selectively to achieve and support an organization’s own approach to EPE including its commitments to compliance with legal and other requirements, the prevention of pollution and continual improvement, among others.
