For the 2019 edition of the EMAS Awards, the European Commission acknowledged the achievements of EMAS registered organisations that implemented EMAS as a driver of change towards sustainable transition through a long-term holistic vision for a positive impact on sustainable development as a whole.
EMAS is an important environmental policy instrument that contributes to the achievement of the Paris Agreement Goals as well as to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With their systematic environmental management processes, EMAS registered organisations are well-placed to take pioneering steps in making a sustainable transition reality. That is why the EU wants to identify the best strategies and measures taken by EMAS registered organisations and boost their visibility to promote their replication across the EU.
