EMAS stands for Eco-Manage­ment and Audit Sche­me and is a Euro­pean stan­dard for envi­ron­men­tal manage­ment sys­tems. Ket­tel­hack has been EMAS cer­ti­fied sin­ce 2017. The EMAS requi­re­ments include ISO 14001:2015 at their core, but go bey­ond this stan­dard in some respects. In addi­ti­on to the obli­ga­to­ry annu­al publi­ca­ti­on of an envi­ron­men­tal state­ment, EMAS also con­siders all direct (and indi­rect) sources of envi­ron­men­tal impact by a company.

EMAS-regis­tered com­pa­nies make an effec­ti­ve con­tri­bu­ti­on to envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion, save cos­ts and show social respon­si­bi­li­ty. EMAS ensu­res that all envi­ron­men­tal aspects from ener­gy con­sump­ti­on to was­te are imple­men­ted in a legal­ly secu­re and trans­pa­rent man­ner.” (www.emas.eu)
