Overview of Environmental Management Plan Report
Environmental management plans define how an action may affect the natural environment in which it happens and include specific commitments from the person doing the action on how such impacts will be avoided, minimised, and managed in an ecologically acceptable manner. Environmental management plans are frequently produced in the environmental impact assessment process. They may be included in the material reviewed by the Minister or their delegate when considering whether to approve a proposed activity. The approval conditions frequently cite environmental management plans if the planned activity is accepted. Moreover, approval requirements may need the approval of an updated or additional environmental management plan report before the allowed action may commence. In all of these cases, these principles will help develop environmental management strategies.

Requirement of Environmental Management Plan Report Preparation
A typical environmental management strategy will have reporting systems for two reasons. Reporting arrangements help with implementation and external reporting. External reports may include reports to the regulator on environmental incidents, reports to stakeholders, reports to inform plan reviews, and reports to satisfy the reporting obligations of the permission conditions.
The environmental management plan report should describe the training to be implemented, which could include the following:
Every training should be documented, including:

Process of Environmental Management Planning
- Step 1- Environmental Policy
The process of developing an EMS begins with the establishment of an Environmental Policy that is linked to the organisation's objective.
- Step 2-Planning
Identifying regulatory and other requirements; identifying processes, resources, and significant impacts; identifying pollution prevention opportunities; developing objectives and targets for improvement efforts; and developing a planning, programming, and budgeting system are all part of the planning step.
- Step 3- Implementation
Defining the structure, responsibilities, and programmes; implementing training; creating the EMS documentation (including document control and record keeping); communicating the EMS to personnel; developing and implementing standard operating procedures [SOPs]; and developing and implementing emergency preparedness and response procedures comprise the implementation step.
- Step 4- Checking
Monitoring and measuring (e.g., internal assessments), issue and cause identification, corrective and preventative action execution, and an EMS Review are all part of the checking and corrective action process.
- Step 5- Review
Upper management analyses the EMS, including the outcomes of internal evaluations, during the management review process. Changes to the EMS are made when needed to assure compliance. The management review is intended to guarantee that the EMS is continually improved, considering the outcomes of the checking and corrective actions performed in Step 4.
