The tools for assessing and communicating the environmental performance of products and organizations have taken on a decisive role in terms of business competitiveness and benefits for companies.
Environmental certifications are mainly represented by EMSs (Environmental Management Systems), such as the EMAS system (EU Eco-Management and Audit System), which is a voluntary environmental product certification, by which public and private companies aim to improve environmental efficiency performance.
While it is undeniable that environmental management systems represent a cost, the positive effects for the protection of the environment and the countless advantages that are summarised below cannot be underestimated:
- From the point of view of corporate reputation;
- The non-compliance with certain standards can result in administrative and criminal penalties;
- Both the economic and merit benefits in public procedures;
- The simplification of a number of requirements for environmental permits.
In conjunction with our technical partners, we carry out inspections, on-site visits, environmental compliance assessment, gap analysis and environmental audit, in order to verify the regulatory compliance of business processes.
