EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) Verification

EMAS Verification: Become an environmental leader.

Independent EMAS verification shows your stakeholders that you are taking a proactive approach to environmental performance.


The EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) was introduced as a voluntary initiative to continually improve your organisation’s environmental performance. It is a significant step towards fulfilling the European Commission’s goal of sustainable development.

What we offer

Verification - We are accredited to deliver EMAS verification ensuring that your organisation’s environmental statement  is both fair and accurate. As part of this process we will verify your conformity to the EMAS regulation, validate your environmental report and assess your environmental management system.

Gap analysis -  We provide a gap analysis service designed to support you in your preparation for verification against the EMAS regulation.

What are the benefits?

For organisations already certified to ISO 14001, conformity with the EMAS regulation can be achieved in just a few simple steps.
