The certification is the latest recognition of Tratos SRL’ dedicated core sustainability strategy. The strategy embraces manufacturing, materials, energy and emissions, recycling and reuse – and innovating to reduce, and ultimately eliminate waste.
EMAS supports organisations as they work to find the right tools to improve their environmental performance. Participating organisations commit to evaluating and reducing their environmental impact.
Third-party verification guarantees the external and independent nature of the EMAS registration process.
Providing publicly available information on an organisation’s environmental performance is an important aspect of EMAS. Organisations achieve greater transparency both externally through the environmental statement and internally through employees’ active involvement.
Businesses and organisations working with EMAS are actively contributing towards the development of a circular economy and are committed to reducing their environmental impacts, strengthen legal compliance and employee involvement – and save resources and money.
The European Commission is also behind The Environment Action Programme (EAP), which Tratos supports, which is conceived to help guide EU action on the environment and climate change.
Over-arching goals can be summarized: “Living well, within the limits of our planet” and “Transform the EU into a resource-efficient, low-carbon economy.”
