Keywords:Maturity model, Еnvironmental management systems, Мethodology, Мineral raw materials industry
The article presents an approach to improve an implemented environmental management system in industrial organization based on the self-assessment using a methodology in terms of specifying the level of maturity through such model of environmental management systems, based on ISO 14001 as a factor for development of a sustainable development of organizations from the mineral raw materials industry in Bulgaria. A practical application of the methodology in "Kaolin" EAD - a leader in the "Industrial Minerals" sector is presented. The described methodology ensures an opportunity to the interested parties of the company which operates in an environmentally friendly way that annually have to assess the current level of maturity and proposes actions that will lead to the sustainable development of its activity.
