Environmental imperatives necessitate formal Environmental Management Systems (EMS) to understand and manage the environmental consequences of commercial activities. A diverse range of EMS have been proposed, however these present limitations in accommodating changes in environmental performance, and do not incorporate fundamental process analysis to assess how the actual performance varies from what is theoretically achievable. A novel engineering-based risk evaluation framework has been developed that applies fuzzy logic and fundamental process analysis to overcome the identified issues.
