Operation of an EU helpdesk for the support and promotion of the eco-management and audit scheme (EMAS).
The Unit Sustainable Production and Consumption of the Directorate-General for the Environment aims to ensure the implementation of sustainable policies and voluntary approaches for industry as well as the development and promotion of integration of environmental requirements into industry and the internal market. 1 of the voluntary instruments the Unit has successfully implemented for almost 20 years is the EU eco-management and audit scheme (EMAS). 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 and was originally restricted to companies in industrial sectors. Since 2001, however, EMAS has been open to all economic sectors including public and private services. Since 2009 EMAS has also developed itself into an environmental instrument that is applicable worldwide.The aim of the EMAS helpdesk services contract will be to perform work to support the implementation and promotion of the EMAS scheme. Currently around 4 500 organisations with over 12 000 sites in Europe and the world use the EMAS instrument to voluntarily improve their environmental performance continuously. Organisations that fulfil all requirements described in the EMAS Regulation (EC No 1221/2009) and use an independent EMAS verifier to verify the correct implementation can become EMAS registered. The EMAS helpdesk services described in this contract are not only instrumental to a correct implementation of the EMAS scheme, but also aim at promoting the scheme to outside the EMAS community with the goal of maintaining and preferably increasing the number of EMAS registrations. The ultimate goal being an increased contribution of the scheme to an improved environmental quality in Europe.
