EMAS Newsletter – Issue 02 / May 2013

Dear EMAS Community,

Spring is the season of renewed vigour and new activities – and so it has been with EMAS these past two months. The German EMAS conference brought together German EMAS stakeholders and European Commission representatives for a fresh look at EMAS' potentials. Participants reflected on the results of the 2012 survey among German EMAS users which confirmed the benefits of registering with EMAS but also provided valuable suggestions for future developments.

EMAS registered organisations proved yet again that they are 'the best of the best' in environmental management at the German Corporate Social Responsibility Awards: Two out of four categories were won by EMAS users and seven more EMAS registered organisations were short-listed!

What better motivation for all EMAS users to keep growing green ideas and setting new goals in environmental management.

Enjoy the read!

Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for the Environment
