GRIFFITH, Alan and BHUTTO, Khalid (2009). Better environmental performance : a framework for integrated management systems (IMS). Management of Environmental Quality : An International Journal, 20 (5), 566-580.Full text not available from this repository.
Purpose – A previous paper in this journal focused on how the integration of standards-based management systems used by major contractors operating within the construction sector could contribute to improvements in the environmental performance of a company. However, it was seen that the lack of a recognised management system framework to guide organisations and their operations was proving inhibitive to success. This paper aims to address that shortcoming, presenting a workable and useful framework for configuring integrated management systems (IMSs) targeted at delivering better environmental performance. It aims to report on a government-funded research project examining the developments in and applications of IMSs applied to the environment, quality and safety of construction projects in the UK.
