ABSTRACT

This paper describes a trend in environmental management that involves the integration of environmental considerations into business functions, and provides an example of a tool that is being used to facilitate that integration. The increased scrutiny of companies’ environmental performance in the last few years has resulted in the recognition that environmental issues need to be considered in the context of planning for and doing business, and that environmental management cannot simply be a means for addressing the consequences of a business strategy. This paper summarizes the reasons for the increasing need to integrate environmental management into business functions and the ways in which companies are accomplishing that integration. This paper also includes description of a materials screening system, which is one tool being used to integrate environmental considerations into purchasing and design functions. The key features and benefits of a screening system are described, along with a more detailed description of a screening system that has actually been implemented.
