Environmental & Social Impact Assessment,
Due to the increasing emphasis on
Environmental Compliance as a legal requirement; organisations and
decision makers have become aware of the need and importance of assessing
the impacts of any proposed project (or expansion of current process/activities)
on the environment, social and economic aspects.
Accordingly, Environmental Reviews are
conducted by organisations to achieve and demonstrate sound environmental
performance by controlling the impact of their activities and considering
all environmental aspects. Generally such reviews cover:
Identification of significant
Examination of all existing
environmental management practices
Furthermore, Environmental and Social
Impact Assessment (ESIA’s) and Environmental Impact Statements (EIS’s) are
provided by the organisations to assist in predicting the impacts or
changes a new activity or project may have on the surroundings. E.g.
generation of wastewater, air emissions/pollutants, consumption of
natural resources, effect on flora and fauna, socio-economic effects, and
any other changes that may take place, whether beneficial or adverse.
Such studies will require the
involvement of specialists from different sectors to have a comprehensive,
realistic and reliable study. For that, Future Environment
cooperates with a number of specialists in different fields to optimise
their expected benefits for organisations while taking into consideration
all environmental values in light of detailed environmental studies and
public comments on the potential environmental impacts of projects.
Environmental Management Systems, EMS (ISO
During the last two decades,
environmental awareness among people, and consequently organizations, has
shown an impressive change towards reservation of natural resources and
reducing the impacts of their activities on the environment.
In order to provide organizations
intending to improve their Environmental Performance with guidelines to
build their own Environment Management Systems (EMS), the International
Organization for Standardization (ISO) issued the ISO 14000 standard in
the year 1996. This standard, along with other supplementary standards
provide the guidelines for building an internal management system that
deals with sources of pollution within organizations leading to the
improvement in their Environmental Performance.
Being ISO 14000 Certified clarifies that
the organization is aware of impacts of its activities/products/services
on the environment and has set actions to control these activities and to
comply with the applicable legal and other applicable regulations.
Future Environment’s Management has
recruited a group of professional engineers (Chemical, Environmental and
Industrial Engineers) to assist companies in building their Environment
Management Systems, who are highly capable of maximizing the expected
benefits from implementing such a system.
Environmental Problem Solving and Performance Enhancement
Lots of organizations are facing
problems demonstrating sound compliance to environmental legal
requirements. This is mainly due to the lack of environmental aspects’
consideration at the initial organizations ‘construction planning stages.
Future Environment can provide different
types of organization with high level of technical support to identify
the major sources of environmental problems and propose solutions to
enhance the environmental performance of the organization.
Such studies are tailored in a manner
that best suits our customers’ needs and expectations in solving their
environment-related problems in a highly professional and scientific
manner. To optimize the expected gains of such studies, Future
Environment subcontracts with experts in the related field of
service/industry to come up with reasonable, technically valid solutions
of the existing environmental problems.
One of the major operating expenses for
different types of industries is related to energy (electricity and fuel)
consumption. Energy Conservation studies focus on studying the different
processes that are taking place (including a Technical Study of the
performance of equipment) and determining the key sources of high
consumption of energy. These studies shall include recommendations for
improvement to reduce the rate of energy consumption along with the
expected consumption reduction percentages.
An initial scientific estimation of the
expected reduction in energy consumption is 15-30% for most of the
Jordanian industries, when conducting an efficient Energy Conservation
Waste management has become one of the
main challenges facing countries in recent times. It has a direct impact
on the quality of the surrounding environment due to its linkage to the
population, economical and urban development. Generally, waste management
procedures undergo four main stages, these are (Reduction, Reuse and Recycle),
(Collection and Sorting), (Transportation) and (Treatment and Disposal).
Future Environment can provide different
organisations with the support to assess opportunities for the
application of the 3R’s principle or sorting at source and other solid
waste management procedures.
Due to the lack of water resources in
Jordan, it is very crucial to maximize the utilization of the available
resources in order not to face a water crisis in the future.
Future Environment specialized staff can
provide assistance in the identification of available water resources and
utilization of existing resources according to the varying water demand. Such
assistance, provided mainly to the public sector, rely primarily on
review of the available information “desk reviews”, surveys

Laboratory Accreditation (ISO 17025)
Is the main standard used by testing
and calibration laboratories and it applies directly to all organizations
that produce testing and calibration results. Since its initial release,
a second release was made in 2005 after it was agreed that it needed to
have its quality system words more closely aligned with the 2000 version
of ISO 9001.
The two main sections in ISO/IEC 17025
are Management Requirements and Technical Requirements.
Management requirements are primarily related to the operation and
effectiveness of the quality management system within the laboratory. Technical
requirements include factors which determine the correctness and
reliability of the tests and calibrations performed in laboratory.
Generally, laboratories use ISO/IEC 17025 to implement a quality system
aimed at improving their ability to consistently produce valid results.

GMP is a quality
system covering the manufacture and testing of active pharmaceutical
ingredients, diagnostics, foods, pharmaceutical products, and medical devices. GMPs are
guidelines that outline the aspects of production and testing that can
impact the quality of a product. Many countries have legislated
that pharmaceutical and medical device companies must follow GMP
procedures, and have created their own GMP guidelines that correspond
with their legislation.
are not prescriptive instructions on how to manufacture products. They
are a series of general principles that must be observed during
manufacturing. When a company is setting up its quality program and
manufacturing process, there may be many ways it can fulfill
GMP requirements. It is the company's responsibility to determine the
most effective and efficient quality process.
Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP)
Is a systematic
preventive approach to food
safety and pharmaceutical safety that addresses
physical, chemical, and biological hazards as a
mean of prevention rather than finished product inspection.
HACCP is used in the food industry to identify potential food
safety hazards, so that key actions can be taken to reduce or eliminate
the risk of the hazards being realized. The system is used at all stages
of food production and preparation
processes including packaging, and distribution.
Conformity de European ( CE
Is a mandatory conformance mark on many
products placed on the single market in the European Economic Area (EEA). The CE marking certifies that a
product has met EU consumer safety, health or environmental requirements.
Originally "CE" stood for "European Community" or
"European Conformity". According to the European Commission
today, the CE logo has become a symbol for free marketability of
industrial goods within the EEA without any literal meaning. By affixing
the CE marking to a product, the manufacturer – on his sole
responsibility – declares that it meets EU safety and health and
International (JCI) Accreditation
is a Voluntary process that evaluates whether a health care organization
meets a set of recognized standards designed to improve the safety and
quality of care. As Quality care, Safe care, Continuous improvement and External
recognition are considered reasons for accreditation
Commission International (JCI) was established in 1994 as a division of
Joint Commission Resources, Inc. (JCR), a private, not-for-profit affiliate
of The Joint Commission. JCI extends The Joint Commission’s mission
worldwide by assisting international health care organizations, public
health agencies, health ministries and others to improve the quality and
safety of patient care in more than 80 countries. JCI offers
accreditation for hospitals, ambulatory care facilities, clinical
laboratories, care continuum services, medical transport organizations
and primary care services.
Accreditation Program was launched in 1999. The standards were developed
by international experts and set uniform, achievable expectations for
structures, processes and outcomes for health care organizations. The
requirements for accreditation also include international patient safety
goals that highlight problematic areas in health care and describe
evidence and expert-based consensus solutions to these problems. The
survey process is designed to accommodate specific legal, religious and
cultural factors within a country.
In 2007, JCI
received accreditation by the International Society for Quality in Health
Care (ISQua) and which provided assurance that JCI
standards, training and processes used to survey the performance of
health care organizations meet the highest international benchmarks for
