Emas guidelines for research organisations
European R&D organisations are being encouraged to adopt the EU's Emas environmental management system standard using a new implementation tool-kit. The kit was developed by partners in four countries financed under the EU's Life environmental project fund. A CD-ROM provides guidelines and training materials plus information on environmental benchmarking for R&D bodies, few of which have taken up Emas since it was opened to all kinds of organisations in 2001. See project website and press release.
