Course Description: The APO has been promoting the concept of Green Productivity (GP) since 1994, where the focus is to enhance productivity and simultaneously reduce negative impacts on the environment. GP leverages various productivity tools and techniques to help organizations improve their quality, occupational safety, and environmental management, which meets the purposes of certain established management systems. An integrated management systems (IMS) is thus suggested to address the quality, environmental, health and safety requirements of an organization more effectively. By combining existing management systems, an IMS is with well-defined goals and objectives, a detailed implementation plan, and measurement on performance involving third-party auditing, which will help organizations to improve their overall productivity and reduce environmental impact.
