Welcome to EMAS!

Interest in the environmental performance of organisations is continually increasing. Taking a proactive approach to environmental challenges is now the hallmark of successful organisations.

The EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) is a management instrument developed by the European Commission for companies and other organisations to evaluate, report, and improve their environmental performance. EMAS is open to every type of organisation eager to improve its environmental performance. It spans all economic and service sectors and is applicable worldwide.

In August 2014, more than 4,000 organisations and approximately 7,500 sites were EMAS registered. Among them are many multinational enterprises and smaller companies as well as public authorities.
