Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS)
EMAS Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) is a voluntary initiative created by the EU, which companies can participate in voluntarily, to assess and improve their environmental performance, and provide the public and other relevant parties with information on their environmental management practices. The main priority of EMAS is to contribute to the implementation of sustainable economic development, highlighting the roles and responsibilities of companies.
The aim of EMAS is to encourage an ongoing improvement in environmental performance in companies, also through:
- introduction and implementation of an environmental management system by companies;
- information on environmental performance and open discussion with the public and other relevant parties, also through the publication of an environmental declaration.
The environmental management system stipulated by the EMAS standard is based on the ISO 14001:2004 standard, which outlines all the requirements. On the other hand, open discussion with the public is pursued by stipulating that organisations publish (or keep updated) an Environmental Declaration which outlines key details and information about the company, with regard to environmental aspects and impact.
