As part of its commitment to protect the environment, WRPS has established an Environmental Management System, or EMS. An EMS provides mechanisms for responding to changing environmental conditions and requirements, reporting on environmental performance, and reinforcing continuous improvement.
WRPS conforms to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO 14001) EMS principles. This approach ensures environmental impacts are systematically identified, controlled, and monitored. Significant impacts and aspects associated with day-to-day work activities and operations are evaluated. The WRPS EMS is designed to improve environmental performance, provide compliance with legal regulations, improve efficiency and effectiveness, reduce costs, and earn and retain regulator and community trust.
