The EMMS is designed as a complement to any new or existing environmental monitoring systems that might be developed by IPC members, and will act as a common reporting structure within which post companies will disclose environmental management strategies, performance and achievements.

The EMMS provides a common reporting structure allowing participating postal operators to disclose their environmental management strategies, performance and achievements. It has been designed as a complement to any new or existing environmental monitoring systems that may be developed by IPC members.

The common reporting structure provided by the EMMS allows all participants to share knowledge on carbon and environmental management issues and provides customers with up to date and consistent data regarding the role of postal services in their supply chains.
