EMAS

Certified environmental management with a system

Business and the environment must go hand in hand - and they can. With the European environmental management system EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme), companies are able to save resources intelligently. But EMAS can do much more: EMAS-certified organisations make an effective contribution to environmental protection, save costs and demonstrate social responsibility. EMAS ensures that all environmental aspects from energy consumption to waste and emissions are implemented in a legally secure and transparent manner. In order to verify the effectiveness and performance improvement of the environmental management system, verification by independent persons is necessary. Sector-specific accredited environmental verifiers take on this task in the EMAS system. This ensures transparency, credibility and the quality of environmental management.

The advantages of EMAS are already recognised in many sectors, but especially in the event industry. A number of event venues, hotels, etc. are already EMAS-registered and thus transparently demonstrate to the outside world that they practice professional environmental protection.

Q Does your company have a SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY?

Within the framework of the environmental programme, EMAS organisations define environmental goals and measures for achieving these goals. Compliance with the objectives and measures is verified by external, state-audited environmental verifiers. Since EMAS requires continuous improvement of environmental performance, the formulation of a strategy is also part of environmental management.
