What types of resources will I have to commit to implement to an EMS?

The most significant resource for every organization, no matter its size, is top management leadership, involvement, and visibility in the project. Beyond that, the amount of time and money needed to implement an EMS depends on the size and activities of the organization. An organization can utilize a consultant such as KEM to facilitate implementation but it is recommended that employees throughout the entire organization, not just the environmental department, do the bulk of the implementation work.
