ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted specification for an environmental management system. It specifies requirements for establishing an environmental policy, determining environmental aspects and impacts of products, activities, and services, planning environmental objectives and measurable targets, implementation and operation of programs to meet objectives and targets, checking and corrective action, and management review.
EMAS ( Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) is a voluntary European Community initiative designed to improve the environmental performance of companies. Its aim is to recognize and reward those organisations that go beyond minimum legal compliance and continuously improve their environmental performance. Participating organisations must regularly produce a public environmental statement that reports on their environmental performance. Minimizing the amount of waste that is produced, reducing energy consumption and making more efficient use of resources can all lead to financial cost savings, in addition to helping to protect and improve the environment.
