Redefining environmental management system boundaries through stakeholder management across product life-cycle
by Shirish Sangle
International Journal of Environment and Sustainable Development (IJESD), Vol. 4, No. 2, 2005

Abstract: The paper makes an attempt to show that integration of life-cycle thinking into EMS can certainly address environmental issues, external to the organisation. New emphasis must be placed on product life-cycle thinking, to achieve business performance consistent with sustainability principles. In effect, the paper calls for redesigning the EMS through life-cycle environmental review (LCER) capable of addressing environmental issues across the life-cycle of its products: institutionalising diffusion of continual improvement across the product life-cycle; stakeholder concerns across the product life-cycle; relating to the relevant global environmental issues.
