Ecomapping is a visual process to identify the environmental aspects in a plant or industry quickly and simply. An ecomap is a reference to a diagram that uses the plant layout to express graphically the locations where attention must be given to improve production or environmental performance. Eco-maps are useful because they permit rapid understanding of where the major problems are within an organization. They do not require significant training to use and can be implemented in a day. This way, more energy can be spent on problem solving rather than on problem identification.
