ISO 14001 & GSA Region 8

Continual Plan Do Check Act SymbolGSA Region 8 implemented its Environmental Management System (EMS) in 2006 at the Denver Federal Center (DFC) in response to Executive Order 13148, “Greening the Government through Leadership in Environmental Management”.  Within two years Sustainability was incorporated into the EMS, creating an SEMS and the program was expanded to include GSA properties throughout Region 8. Region 8 includes Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming.

GSA Region 8 adopted the ISO 14001 structure to implement its Management System. How GSA Region 8 manages the requirements outlined in each clause of the ISO 14001 is outlined in the SEMS Manual and corresponding System Procedure, attached below.
