Businesses around the world are facing increasing demands for improvement in environment performance. They are exposed to greater pressures from customers, employees and competitors and are having to deal with a plethora of rapidly changing regulations and guidelines in their field. To deal with these pressures, many companies have chosen to implement environmental management systems (EMS) that essentially allow the environmental impact of a company or organisation to be more easily controlled.
Whilst in theory, implementing an EMS should improve a company's environment performance, there is little data to back this up. Over the next three years, REMAS will collate data from sites throughout Europe with the aim of documenting the evidence to link the presence of an EMS to environmental performance. In addition, REMAS will use this information to demonstrate ways of avoiding duplication from the overlap of regulatory process work and that of EMS implementation.
The project will take this further by cascading the project findings to key EU stakeholders to encourage replication, understanding and the enhancement of environmental management practice.
