EMAS Awards

Since 2005, the European Commission has organised the European EMAS Awards, described as the most prestigious award in environmental management.

Participating organisations from throughout the EU take part in one of six categories: small public, large public, micro-sized private, small private, medium-sized private or large private organisations. The Awards are handed out to organisations that have demonstrated environmental excellence in their category. The EMAS Awards are held every two years and last took place in 2015.
