EMS Definitions ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECT Element of an organization's activities, products or services that can interact with the environment. ENVIRONMENT Surroundings in which an organization operates, including air, water, land, natural resources, flora, fauna, humans, and their interrelation. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT Any change to the environment, whether adverse or beneficial, wholly or partially resulting from an organization's activities, products or services.
4.3.1 Environmental Aspects • Procedure to identify aspects of activities, products, services. • Aspects that can be controlled or influenced. • Determine aspects that have or can have significant impacts. • Consider significant aspects in setting environmental objectives. • Keep information up to date
4.3.2 Legal & Other Requirements • Procedure to identify and access • Applicable to environmental aspects
4.3.3 Objectives and Targets • Documented objectives and targets • Relevant functions and levels • Consider: • legal and other requirements • significant environmental aspects • technological options • financial requirements • operational and business requirements • views of Interested parties • Consistent with environmental policy
4.3.4 EM Program(s) • Plan for achieving objectives and targets • Designate responsibility at relevant functions and levels • Define means and time frame • Amend as necessary

ISO 14001 - Continuous Improvement Cycle Management Review Checking & Corrective Action Commitment & Policy Implementation & Operation Planning
Athens Plant EMS Policy We are committed to maintaining an Environmental Management System that promotes continual improvement, prevention of pollution, and compliance with applicable legislation, regulations and other requirements pertinent to our operations. We will strive to use energy efficiently, to reduce, reuse, and recycle materials in an effort to conserve natural resources, and minimize wastes from the manufacture of superchargers.
Environmental Aspects Assemble Resource Teams Activities & Products Brainstorming Potential Impacts Select an Approach (Initial Procedure)
Environmental Aspects Apply approach & review results Modify approach & / or Collect more data, as needed Control or influence Consolidate findings & review Adjust as required
Environmental Aspects • Environmental Steering Team • EHS Manager • Engineer • Quality Manager • Training Coordinator Process 1. List environmental categories and concerns 2. Identify Eaton activities that could have impact 3. Quantify impact 4. Determine significant aspects
Impact - Evaluation Criteria Evaluate manufacturing processes or equipment with respect to impact. A machine with a total of 10 or greater indicates a significant process. A category total of >50 indicates a significant environmental category.0 = No negative impact - An event beyond Eaton's control or authority to manage, or a process that improves environment. Ex. - Water taken from river returned cleaner.1 = Insignificant impact - No measurable effect or cost.2 = Low impact - Minimal consequence or cost. Ex. A spilled chemical that is easily and quickly cleaned up.3 = Moderate Impact - Activity with moderate cost of management, containment or clean-up.4 = High Impact - Causes measurable and sustained harm to the environment or has high cost to manage. Ex. – extremely hazardous material.
Significant Aspects • Machine Fluid Management • Energy Consumption • Solid Wastes
Legal and Other Requirements • How do you identify which activities are covered by the regulations? • How do you determine the relevant regulations? • How do you keep track of the regulations? • What is the process to identify non-regulatory requirements? • Are legal and other requirements factored into your objectives and targets?
Keeping Up to Date • Internet sites - ganet, EPA, OSHA • Industry/Trade Publications • Regulation updates from BNA, Keller, Legal Reports, etc. • Eaton EHS Network • Company News letters and alerts • Professional publications .. Occupational Health & Safety, Environmental Engineering
Setting Targets Policy & Commitment Significant Aspects Objectives and Targets Legal & Other Requirements Business Considerations Interested Parties
SC Objectives and Targets • Energy Consumption • Reduce by 5% per supercharger produced • Machine Fluid Management • Reduce by 10% per supercharger produced • Solid Wastes • Reduce by 20% per supercharger produced
Environmental Management Program(s) Establish and maintain program(s) for achieving objectives and targets. • Designation of responsibility at each relevant function and level • The means and timeframe by which they are to be achieved. • Method to amend program(s) as new products and/or programs are added to assure conformance to the EMS
