The Environmental Aspects and Impacts course is intended to help you guide your organisation towards a strategy that will improve its overall environmental performance and comply with recent environmental legislation.
This course takes you through the first steps in introducing an environmental management system into your organisation. In order to accomplish this, you will explore in detail both local and global environmental issues, and how your company can reduce its contribution to these problems.
