href="">Overview of EMAS:

The EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) is a management tool for companies and other organisations to evaluate, report and improve their environmental performance. The scheme has been available for participation by companies since 1995 (Council Regulation (EEC) No 1836/93 of 29 June 1993) and was originally restricted to companies in industrial sectors.

Information about href="">list:

This list is a compilation of the national registers of EMAS organisations held by the EMAS Competent Bodies. Competent Bodies communicate on a regular basis changes, additions and deletions in their registers to the EMAS Helpdesk, which is responsible for maintaining the EU register.

This list was last updated on 06/04/2009. There are currently 6896 sites in 4331 EMAS registered organisations. Please note that Competent Bodies do not all send their national updates at the same time, the EU register might therefore not always reflect correct number of registered organisations for each Member State.
