Environmental protection at company level, EIA
What can companies do to ensure environmental protection?
Waste abatement an recycling, reduction of emissions, maintenance and improvement of the water quality, sustainable management, and environmentally friendly business adaptations.
One major component of environmental protection is prevention. Technical installations are getting bigger and thus are becoming an always greater risk to the environment. Facility-related environmental protection encompasses a wide range of topics - some of them fall under the competence of the BMLFUW, for example the Environmental Impact Assessment or waste management.
EMAS is the European Eco-Management and Audit Scheme; its tasks are performed on a legal basis. Organisations of the private sector and the public sector are invited to voluntarily participate.
