The application period for the EMAS Awards 2015 has closed and this year’s nominees have now been chosen! Last year’s edition showed there is a high level of environmental performance and commitment among EMAS registered organisations. Moreover, fostering eco-innovation is essential for the transition process towards a resource-efficient sustainable economy. Therefore the theme for 2015 is again 'Effective eco-innovations supporting improvements in environmental performance'.
EMAS Awards 2015 aim at highlighting inspiring examples of EMAS registered organisations which have been particularly innovative in becoming greener and which are taking steps to reduce their environmental impact. Former EMAS Awards winners and nominees demonstrate that going green doesn’t mean going into the red – quite the contrary! Both public and private organisations implementing the premium environmental management tool EMAS lead the way with their outstanding environmental contribution and the European Commission is pleased to support them through the EMAS Awards.
This year’s EMAS Awards will be held on 20 May at the 18th European Forum on Eco-innovation in Barcelona, Spain. We look forward to discovering the winners. Come along and support all the nominees! You can register here.
