Regulation (EC) No 1221/2009 Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS)

EMAS Regulation is suitable for organisations that want to go one step beyond ISO 14001.


EMAS is a voluntary tool available to any organisation that operates in an economic sector of the European Union or outside it, and that wishes to:

  • Assume an environmental and economic responsibility,
  • Improve their environmental performance,
  • Communicate its environmental results to society and interested parties in general.

Organisations that register for EMAS must:

  • Demonstrate that they respect environmental legislation,
  • Commit to improving their environmental performance continuously,
  • Demonstrate that they maintain an open dialogue with all stakeholders,
  • Involve employees in improving the organisation’s environmental performance,
  • Publish and update a validated EMAS environmental statement for external communication.
  • Carry out an environmental analysis (including the identification of all direct and indirect environmental aspects),
  • Register with a competent body after having passed the verification.

Once registered, organisations are entitled to use the EMAS logo.
