The call for applications to the EMAS Awards 2015 is open! Last year’s edition showed there is a high level of environmental performance and commitment among EMAS registered organisations. The number of applications from EMAS registered organisations carrying out outstanding environmental innovations and inspiring ‘greening’ strategies was simply too high to be restricted to one edition of the Award. Moreover, fostering eco-innovation is essential for the transition process towards a resource-efficient sustainable economy. Therefore the theme for 2015 will again be '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.
The path towards an economic model representing responsible, resource- efficient and smart production and consumption is green. EMAS is helping companies along the way in their contribution to a more sustainable future. Come and join the effort, and provide inspiration to others! We are looking forward to your applications!
From now until 30 January 2015, EMAS registered organisations are encouraged to send their applications to their national Competent Body. You can find the application form and the information regarding eligibility and evaluation criteria here.
