Environmental Management Plans

An Environmental Management Plan (EMP) demonstrates to the community and regulatory authorities that your dairy is operated in accordance with industry environmental guidelines and the principles of environmental sustainable development.

FSA Consulting has extensive experience in developing EMPs and Waste Management Plans (WMPs). A procedures manual can be developed that will set out daily, weekly, monthly, annual and on-going procedures that occur at the dairy. This can be given to current or new staff to aid them in undertaking these procedures as required. It can also be presented to the relevant authorities as a record of what actions occurs at the dairy to address any environmental concerns.

Let us develop an EMP or WMP and procedures manual, tailored to suit your dairying operation.
