Often ” the forgotten of the system, this pillar, beyond a social, political and of course important legislative aspect, is also a source of considerable economic gain. The pillar Costs Deployment will undoubtedly highlight the total costs of energy and may prioritize this type of action.
1 – Understand local legislation and environmental rules and trends
As a first step, we understand that it is a priority to respond to the regulations in force. These will be the priority elements. It will be the work of the leader of this pillar that will be named from the beginning of the project.
Once the regulatory priorities have been developed, with the support of the elements of the Costs Deployment, we will build a deployment plan for the Environment and Energy program. We will indicate for each project the objectives in terms of time and earnings.
2 – Take the seeds to eradicate the sources of contamination
In the selected perimeter, we will investigate the sources of contaminations. Depending on these contaminations, we will determine the countermeasures to put in place to eradicate these sources.
3 – Put in place the basic conditions
We will continue by implementing countermeasures, developing new standards or updating existing standards. This will be used to horizontally deploy good practices on places with the same problems.
Audits will be instituted to validate standards and involve staff in environmental activities.
4 – Put in place the plan to reduce consumption
We will continue with the implementation of a plan to reduce consumption of energy and raw materials. The person in charge of the pillar will have to measure the consumption of all the materials and energies and see how we can try to reduce them via good use practices (turn off all equipment on the WE for example), the installation of equipment recycling (solvent recycler for painting workshops for example …), setting up new technologies…
The gains and costs of each solution will be evaluated to prioritize deployment.
5 – Establish an environmental management system
At this stage, an Environmental Management System (EMS) will be put in place. We will then be able to put in place the means to obtain the recognized certifications (ISO 14001).
6 – Improve the system for reducing environmental burdens
Continuously, the company will have to make sure to reduce consumption. We can begin or continue a policy of “green” purchases, such as buying recycled products..
7 – Create the Green business
The goal of creating a green plant model will be pursued by deploying a “green
