Environmental Management System   

One of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory’s highest priorities is ensuring that its environmental performance measures up to its world class status in science. As part of our commitment to environmentally responsible operations, we have established a formal Environmental Management System (EMS).

An EMS is a systematic methodology for managing and integrating the environmental, safety and health aspects of operations with special emphasis on compliance assurance, resource efficiency, pollution prevention, and continuous improvement. PPPL implements its EMS in conjunction with its Integrated Safety Management System (ISMS) and work planning processes to meet the requirements of Executive Orders as well as DOE Order 436.1.
