EMAS leads to improvements in management processes and environmental performance for all types of organisations. To help make the process of implementing EMAS even easier, especially for small and medium organisations, the EMAS Helpdesk has designed four pilot tools to assist with introducing EMAS. The tools come with an instruction manual that will walk you through using the tools and give other helpful hints for EMAS implementation.
These tools are currently beta versions (pilot tools) open for testing by all types of organisations. We welcome your feedback on suggested improvements and also what you liked about the tools through this feedback form. The EMAS Helpdesk will review comments and modify the tools accordingly.
Please note that the tools do not cover a complete implementation of EMAS, but are designed to help with the implementation process. To see how the tools fit into the EMAS process, check out the “How does it work?” section of our website and the instruction manual for the tools.
Please save the files in the same place on your computer so that the automatic links between the tools will work. If you have any questions, please contact the EMAS Helpdesk.
Some regional governments and organisations have developed their own EMAS implementation tools. For example, the city of Barcelona and the EMAS Club Catalonia and the Bavarian Environment Ministry in Germany have each developed a tool set. Contact your Competent Body to find out if there are tools available in your language!
