Message from the PresidentFocusing onthe Now, with anEye to the Futureby Chris Nelson, P.E. » president@awma.orgFor A&WMA staff and leaders, July is a month to take adeep breath, reflect on the first half of the year, and thenquickly reengage on Association business. So far in 2018,our international organization and members have deliveredhigh-quality workshops on New Source Review, incinerationtechnologies, and auditing; successful online training thathighlighted critical issues related to air quality, hazardouswaste, and storage tanks; and a half-dozen new issues eachof JA&WMA and EM. Volunteer leaders met in Pittsburgh inApril for leadership training. In June, members gathered inHartford for our Annual Conference & Exhibition. Beyondthese centrally planned events, our Sections and Chaptersprovided local programs to meet member needs. I hopeyou participated in some of these programs.Looking forward to the second half of 2018, we will havemore webinars, JA&WMA and EM content, audit workshops,and conferences. Our local team in Quebec City is alreadyplanning the 2019 Annual Conference & Exhibition. I amhappy with the enthusiasm of both the local team and ourgeneral membership for the 2019 event. Please check outthe online A&WMA calendar ( for events that can help with your professionaldevelopment and technical work. If you don’t see whatyou need, please let us know.As part of my role as A&WMA President, I get to speak toour volunteer leaders at multiple levels of the organization.Now that we have reached the midpoint of 2018, my dogand pony show is pretty well established. I want to see theorganization drive 2018 programs and results, while keepingan eye on the type of organization we want to become in 2025and beyond. This dual focus will help us continually evolveour organization and its member offerings to stay relevantand provide real member value, even as our membershipand profession changes with the global economy.We can’t create new programs or services overnight, but wecan make incremental progress and build upon our successes.When I envision a flourishing A&WMA in 2025, I see acontinuation of our historical programs and publications withadditional engagement between members and the use ofmodern media and technology. I often highlight three longrange focus areas for our 2018 Board: member mentoringprograms, the use of modern media for content delivery,and an “A&WMA Academy” approach to content alignment.Over the next few months, I’ll describe our progress andgoals for these projects in this space. If you have ideas orvolunteer energy to move the initiatives forward, we arealways looking to connect leaders to opportunities.Our long-term goals are important, but our regular memberservices can provide value today. By way of example, the Julyissue of EM focuses on the 2015 revisions to the ISO 14001environmental management system. For manufacturingfacilities that are certified to the ISO standard, these revisionsrequired significant work to review, update, and implementon-site programs. New definitions, changes to requireddocumentation, an emphasis on leadership commitment, andconsiderations of life-cycle perspectives mean that companyISO programs will look much different in 2018 than theydid in 2014. I’m looking forward to sharing this issue ofEM with my company’s ISO 14001 experts and leaders.Thanks for reading EM, and for your support of andcontributions to A&WMA. emem The Magazine for Environmental Managers A&WMA July 2018

Cover Story by Robert Basl2018 marks an important year for companies who haveadopted an environmental management system (EMS) thatconforms to the ISO 14001 Standard.1 While ISO 14001has existed for more than 20 years, the changes adopted bythe International Organization of Standards in 2015 are themost sweeping since the standard’s inception. Organizationscertified to the former version must incorporate the newrequirements by September 15, 2018. The articles that followexamine key changes in the ISO 14001:2015 Standard,providing organizations with keen insight in order to navigatethese changes and successfully improve their systems.In the first article, Kelly Young, Greg Roberts, and BettyHosteny provide a high-level overview of the key changesin the revised standard. This summary informs interestedreaders on where the emphasis should be placed as theywork to make changes to their systems in advance of theSeptember deadline.Next, Christopher Bell clarifies important new terminologyand offers a comparison between common elements of theprevious and revised standard. Readers actively involved inretooling EMS documents and procedures will find thisroadmap particularly useful.Organizations looking for ways to inject new life into amature EMS or to integrate environmental management withexisting quality management systems may find special valuein my article on implementing the “process approach”. Thisdeparture from the traditional clause-based system allows acompany to infuse environmental awareness into areas of theorganization they may not have historically considered whiledecentralizing ownership of environmental issues.Finally, Anthony Mineo describes in great detail the logisticsassociated with obtaining a multi-site certification to ISO14001:2015. Specific attention to the cost structure andpotential savings will be helpful for larger organizations andthose with certified integrated environment, health, andsafety management systems. emRobert Basl is a Vice President and founder of EHS Technology Group, LLC in Dayton, OH.

Transitioning to the ISO 14001:2015 Standard by Kelly Young, Greg Roberts, and Betty HostenyStrategic LeadershipContextInterested PartiesRisks and OpportunitiesLifecycle PerspectiveTransitioning to theISO 14001:2015 StandardIf you are currently certified, time is running out!A summary of the key changes implemented in the ISO 14001:2015 Standard.em The Magazine for Environmental Managers A&WMA July 2018

Transitioning to the ISO 14001:2015 Standard by Kelly Young, Greg Roberts, and Betty HostenyThe changes to ISO 14001 firmly place it center stageas the instrument to manage the environmental pillar ofsustainability. It is now more strategic, outward looking, andplaces greater emphasis on products and services rather thanjust on-site activities. Consequently, the new standard can actas a stepping stone to developing a holistic sustainability andcorporate social responsibility strategy, or supporting theimplementation of an existing one. Organizations that aretransitioning should consider how their environmentalmanagement system (EMS) can support their widersustainability aspirations and business strategy.It is important to note that ISO 9001 Quality ManagementSystem (QMS) and Occupational Health and Safety AssessmentSeries (OHSAS) 18001 are also changing. The ISO 9001:2015 version and the ISO 45001:2018 (the ISO Healthand Safety Management System standard replacement ofOHSAS 18001) are now available to organizations seekingtriple certifications. The good news is all ISO managementsystem standards will now follow an ISO high-level standardstructure, which means that the majority of requirements willbe common or at least comparable among the standards andmore readily allow for organizations to integrate businessoperations and systems that are at the core. OrganizationsWhile the entire ISO 14001:2015 looks very different, manyof the requirements from its 2004 redecessor have beenincorporated with little content change; however, there arefive primary changes that are critical to understand.Strategic LeadershipSenior management will need to promote and be accountablefor the EMS, which is now expected to be integrated withbusiness processes and compatible with the organization’sbusiness strategy. Before, senior management could get awaywith minimal involvement (e.g., sign policy, appoint a management representative, attend management reviews, etc.).Now senior management must promote and direct others toconsider the environment in their day-to-day responsibilitiesand business processes. There is also an expectation forsenior management to be fully engaged in defining severalof the new requirements, in particular, context and needsof interested parties, as well as intended outcomes.ContextOrganizations now need to demonstrate a broader understanding of the context in which their business operates. YourEMS will need to consider internal and external issues thatcould help or hinder your organization in achieving theOverall, ISO 14001:2015 is intendedto drive greater business value byhelp
