ISO14001 Environmental Aspect Illustrated

Clause 6.1.2 of this international standard stipulates the requirement to identify 'environmental aspects' associated with our activities, products or services; which we can control; and those that could cause significant impact to the environment. This article would illustrate this terminology in as much simplicity as possible by using a non-conventional example from a conventionally popular sports worldwide - Tennis. Is tennis ball an environmental aspect? Does it interact with environment? Should tennis be a sport to be organized with environmental due-diligence? How to manage this sport with more environmental practices? Please consider this as a friendly remark from a tennis fan to all tennis organizers and associations. Most importantly, this understanding shall facilitate any other activities regardless of size, type and nature to get closer to the mastery of the term Environmental Aspect.
