Management Systems and Metrics

Environmental management systems and metrics are developed to define a set of processes and practices that enable foundries to reduce environmental impacts and increase operating efficiency. In this section are examples of environmental management systems and metrics that have been implemented in foundries and may be feasible for implementation at your organization.

Metrics should be designed to be measurable in the form of project target completion dates, standardized units of measure and with established initial baselines to measure improvements against. Such metrics have the advantage over qualitative metrics (e.g. yes/no, green/red, or ahead of schedule/behind schedule) in that they allow for the tracking of improvements and viewing of trends.

Metrics should be easy to understand and apply, repeatable and collected in a consistent way.
