Abstract: All human activity generates impacts to the environment, so it is important that organizations consider the implementation of an Environmental Management System (EMS). The overall objective of this study is to identify and evaluate the environmental aspects and impacts of an animal feed manufacturer, which will be the starting point for the future implementation of an EMS, in accordance to NBR ISO 14001:2015. The methods used were: qualitative approach, applied nature, exploratory research and unsystematic observation. With the results of this research, through the evaluation of the observed environmental aspects and impacts, it was possible to suggest some procedures for the mitigation of the aspects and impacts pointed out in this study. The identification of the environmental aspects and impacts were used to start the first step towards the implementation of the EMS.

Key words: environmental aspects and impacts, environmental management system, ISO 14001, animal nutrition; animal feed
