Abstract: This paper presents a variety of practical concepts which firms may wish to consider during the process of designing an environmental auditing program, or while reviewing the adequacy of an existing program. The information contained in this paper is divided into two main sections. The first presents factors which are likely to motivate corporate managers to develop an auditing program, and the second discusses major auditing concepts which must be considered once the decision to proceed has been made. This information should also be useful to those firms in the process of deciding whether their present program is meeting its intended goals. Finally, two types of specialty auditing programs, for underground storage tanks and pre-acquisition audits, are discussed to illustrate how these auditing concepts can be expanded to areas not normally considered in a comprehensive auditing effort.
