Environmental Management Systems, Systems Implementation, Quality Evaluation


A model of the environmental management system implementation is proposed in this paper. For this model the methodology of the quality implementation evaluation with the use of Formalized Scoring has been developed. The verification proves that the evaluation of the quality of the environmental management system implementation is necessary. It also shows, among others, that there is a possibility to identify the areas difficult to realize. Due to this information the organizations preparing for the implementation of the environmental management system will be able to implement it in a better way. Because of this, they will probably gain more benefits for themselves as well as for the natural environment.
