Why Conduct an Environmental Audit?
It is useful to think of an audit as a diagnostic exam and operations “tune-up.” By conducting the exam (i.e., audit), a business gains a better understanding of where its operations stand compared to specified criteria, such as regulatory compliance, management systems, or others. The audit will indicate what needs to be done to allow operations to meet the criteria so a business can take action and improve its efficiency.
Like other “tune-ups,” an audit should be performed periodically or whenever needed. In Nigeria environmental audit is required from industrial facilities every three (3) years by regulation, which shall be conducted in accordance with the “Guidelines on Environmental Audit in Nigeria”.
