  4. 4. Overcoming common concerns by managers <ul><li>Not knowing what EMS is - you should explain the basic aims and benefits of Ecowizer early on in the process, through a presentation to the management board </li></ul><ul><li>Feel an EMS is unnecessary - any business that buys materials, uses energy and water, receives or makes deliveries, or produces waste has an impact on the environment, so Ecowizer is relevant to all businesses. </li></ul><ul><li>No time or resources to implement an EMS - Ecowizer will help your business to take action by taking actions for you, and help you to become more efficient by reducing energy consumption, waste and, therefore, costs. The time and resources needed are an investment that will make the business more profitable. </li></ul><ul><li>No knowledge to implement an EMS - Doing Ecowizer can be implemented without the need for 'expert' training. Most employees just need to understand the environmental issues relating to their job. </li></ul><ul><li>Feel an EMS is too expensive - the costs involved with implementing Ecowizer vary considerably. Typically, it should be possible to cut the costs of utilities and waste disposal bills by 10-15 per cent without substantial investment, and carrying out a cost-benefit analysis will help to estimate potential savings. You should be able to find a number of low-cost opportunities that will produce significant cost savings and offset the cost of implementing and operating the Ecowizer EMS. </li></ul>

Certification <ul><li>Ecowizer is a self-certified EMS, it is aimed towards small medium size businesses that cannot afford to get ISO certification and are looking for a simplified EMS to serve as a solution for their environmental efforts. </li></ul><ul><li>Ecowizer helps to highlight the organization commitment by producing an environmental report, for use in corporate social responsibility documents and annual reports. </li></ul>
