It was a real pleasure for me to open the 2012 EMAS Awards in Brussels on 29 November of last year. The EMAS Awards have a different focus theme every year. In 2012 the topic was water management - a fitting theme as 2012 was also the European Water Year.
You can browse the EMAS Awards 2012 booklet to find out about the innovative measures that the nominated and winning organisations are already implementing to safeguard the quality and the efficient use of this most valuable resource. When doing so you will undoubtedly also find out that all EMAS Awards nominees and winners are role models, demonstrating that resource efficiency pays off – for their business and for our environment.
