Environmental audit is a very effective management tool, which is designed and conducted to provide information on practices which differ to the current procedures and to exercise effective management of the established system. The sugar industry plays a very important role in India’s national economy. As all stages of sugar production are water intensive and discharging wastewater containing high level of oil, suspended solids, organic matter and chemicals and therefore the sugar industry is one of the most water polluting industries. Therefore conducting ‘Environmental Audit’ in a sugar factory is no longer an option but a sound precaution and a proactive measure in today’s heavily regulated environment. Careful and watchful audit offer prospects for improvement, perfection and achievement of goals. The audit is carried out in four steps and the final report is prepared and suggestions are given. This paper reviews on Environmental Audit programme in a sugar factory of Kolhapur district of Maharashtra (India).
