EMAS is more relevant than ever: As a modern management and audit system, it helps the participating organisations to position for the future - by improving their ability to innovate, reduce environmental impact and costs and strengthen their public reputation. With EMAS, organisations raise their awareness for the effects of their own actions. Opportunities for improvement can be identified and weaknesses can be eliminated.
A continuous process is essential for the improvement of environmental performance, which EMAS provides via annual updates of the environmental statement and the revalidation that have to be carried out in regular intervals by external environmental experts.
Experience shows that EMAS organisations have - due to this systematic and transparent approach – benefits and are thus well prepared for the demands of the future.
