EMAS 20th anniversary high level conference materials online

You can now access a variety of materials online following the high level EMAS conference where celebrated its 20th anniversary where participants look at the scheme’s achievements and also looked forward to its contribution to the circular economy and energy efficiency.  See also the latest video on EMAS.  With EMAS being applied to over 4 000 organisations on 7 000 throughout the EU. Key among its success factor according to the conference participants were the presence of qualified environmental professionals and auditors that take the scheme beyond an official registration with government bodies. Going beyond the standards of the widely used ISO 14001 environmental management system, EMAS requires legal compliance, public reporting through an EMAS environmental statement, and independent third-party audits by government-approved environmental verifiers.  The scheme also demands employee engagement and stakeholder involvement.

And as excellence in environmental performance has become the norm, there are growing numbers eager to apply EMAS.  The scheme has constantly broadened its appeal. To make implementation easier for small- and micro-businesses, the Commission developed the ‘EMAS Easy’ methodology. Using simple and sequential tables and prompts, smaller businesses can now develop an Environmental Management System covering all EMAS requirements and standards.

The programme, speeches and presentations are now online:-
