Commission publishes proposals for EMAS revision

Proposals for a revision of the EC eco-management and audit scheme (EMAS) were released by the European Commission in November. 1 The key changes include closer alignment of EMAS with the global environmental management standard ISO14001 and an extension of the scheme to non-industrial organisations. But business organisations are worried that the changes will make the scheme more onerous and discourage take-up, while environmental groups are concerned that they do not go far enough.
