Furniture Manufacturing - Aspect/Impact Analysis
Once the activities specific to your business—that your business can control—have been identified, the next step is listing each activity’s primary environmental aspects and impacts. From this, a company may identify improvement opportunities in the areas of pollution prevention and operational efficiency. To determine the impacts of each of these activities, the following impacts were considered in this example:
– Acid Rain/ Air Toxic, Global Warming, Ground Level Ozone, Others?
Land Impacts - Hazardous Waste, Solid Waste?
Natural Resource Use - Renewable or Nonrenewable resource?
Water Impacts - Toxic, Oxygen-depleting, Others?
