Metrics related to environmental management systems

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) defined basic criteria, guidance, terms and policies for setting up and using environmental management systems (EMS) for businesses and industries more broadly. The IRIS Catalog of Metrics leverages the US EPA terms, definitions, and metrics guidance in a variety of environmental policy metrics.
