This paper considers the links between environmental management systems using facilities management information system (FMIS). Environmental information management systems (EIMS) can assist firms in organizing internal corporate benchmarking efforts. It attempt to capture environmental impacts from activities throughout a facility under a single system and generally follow traditional benchmarking cycles of plan, do, check, and act. An environmental policy is the central component of and EIMS. The policy typically details the organization's recognition of environmental impacts and states commitment to continuous environmental improvement. Documentation includes a wide variety of elements, including the environmental policy, regulations to which organization is subject, procedures and protocols of activities, and records of monitoring and measurements. These documents define the activities of an EIMS and how personnel across the organization should act to fulfill responsibilities and hopefully meet target of improvement. Thus, how can EIMS relate to Facilities Management Information System? A popular definition for facilities management is the practice of coordinating the physical workplace with the people and work of an organization; it integrates the principles of business administration, architecture, and the behavioral and engineering sciences. It is concerned with the identification of the client's objective in terms of utility, function, quality, time and cost, and the establishment of relationships between resources. This paper will study on how facilities management information system can simplify the work in environmental management system.
