They show that products, activites and services of the company with respect to their impacts on the environment are improving in a sustainable way, which shows a critical improvment for the environment and general quality of life. This standard is in several countries and/or states by means of bonuses or tax benefits rewarded and recognized.

The legal basis for EMAS is Directive (EG) 1221/2009. The development and implementation of an EMAS environmental management system correspond to the ISO 14001 standard. Being a very flexible standard makes EMAS especially interesting for small and middle sized enterprises.
