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)
