This bulletin discusses  the 'benefits  of  an environmental
mangement system  (EMS) based  on DfE concepts.   The DfE approach
encoiirages companies  to  consider environmental and human health
risks in all business decisions.   It  also encourages companies to
evaluate cleaner processes, technologies,  and  workplace
practices.                          -
