EMS Support CSM Bakery to implement various requirements of M&S Plan A 2025 Silver criteria.


UK environmental legislation is varied and covers many different aspects of a business’ activities, services and products. This can often make it confusing and difficult for businesses to understand environmental legislation and how it applies to the business. Alongside UK environmental legislation, customers also necessitate that businesses adhere to Codes of Practice and supply-chain requirements.

EMS Ltd provided support to strengthen CSM Bradford and Wirral’s knowledge on UK environmental legislation and help maintain compliance with these (Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 and Water Resources Act 1991).

EMS Ltd also supported CSM Bradford and Wirral in the implementation of various requirements of M&S Plan A 2025 Silver criteria.

The Client

CSM Bakery Solutions are an international organisation that specialise in the production of an extensive range of tasty baked goods.

Both sites at Bradford and Wirral are aiming to achieve compliance with pertinent environmental legislation as well maintain compliance with customer requirements, i.e. M&S Plan A 2025.

Client Benefits

Qualified consultants with a comprehensive knowledge of different industry sectors provide on-going consultancy support to both the CSM Bradford and Wirral sites. This has contributed to improvements in environmental compliance as well as assisting in compliance with M&S Plan A 2025 Silver criteria.

Through the on-going consultancy support, CSM Bradford and Wirral are now better equipped to manage environmental performance and compliance as well as have knowledge and understanding on the environmental impacts of the businesses’ activities, services and products.

The Challenges

Although both sites have had no historical issues with environmental performance, CSM Bradford and Wirral were looking to improve overall compliance with environmental legislation as well as comply with strict customer requirements.

Both organisations supply product to many different retailers, so it is imperative that the sites identify not only the various environmental legal requirements, but also the requirements of the different customers in regard to environmental performance.

After identifying areas on both sites that required more controls to improve environmental performance, the Bradford and Wirral sites recognised the need for external expertise.

The Solution

EMS Ltd assigned a team including a Senior Environmental Consultant and Environmental Consultant in order to provide on-going advice and professional support.

Through the support of EMS Ltd, the Wirral site are in the process of obtaining an Environmental Permit, Bradford are in the process of obtaining a Trade Effluent Discharge Consent and both sites are implementing processes, procedures and controls to achieve M&S Plan A 2025 Silver by the end of 2019.


EMS have been instrumental in assisting our plant implement a number of environmental management tools to assist us with M&S Plan A compliance. I heartily recommend EMS for anyone needing professional and ethical assistance with environmental compliance.
