The implementation of the environmental management system (EMS) in large companies arises from the need to standardize operations and reduce environmental impacts. The general objective of the study is to develop a protocol for an environmental management system based on ISO 14001 standards in a natural gas company in the region of Amazonas-AM. The monitoring data, indicators of the SGA used in this work were collected in a gas pipeline company in the North region, located in Manaus. In the development of this work, the methodology used consists of exploratory, documentary, with quali-quantitative data, where a survey of information about the EMS of the companies and the logistical system used for the execution of the EMS activities was carried out. The information was collected through interviews and questionnaires applied to the company's environmental professionals. It is concluded that in an internal context, the company is well strengthened because within its processes in the value chain, there are well-structured areas such as Social Management, Environmental Management in its licensing, monitoring and environmental auditing segments, which contribute to ensuring legal, contractual and international standardization requirements, such as those of the ISO 14001:2015 standard. However, the work found, in a comparative analysis with other regions, that the region's logistics system is the main challenge for the company that works with natural gas that affects organizational activities and, consequently, its EMS is affected. Therefore, it appears that the aspect that must be developed immediately to improve the EMS is logistics.
