Belgium-Brussels: Exploring measures for strengthening EMAS added value to authorities and organisations
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Exploring measures for strengthening EMAS added value to authorities and organisations.
On 2.12.2015, the European Commission adopted a circular economy package, which includes an EU action plan for the circular economy. The annex to the action plan sets out the timeline when the actions will be completed. One of the actions identified in this action plan is a commitment by the Commission to take action to increase the efficiency and uptake of the EU's eco-management and audit scheme (EMAS).
In this context the objective of this contract is to explore how further added value can be created for organisations and authorities based on the existing core requirements of EMAS such as third party verified legal compliance and reporting. The development of innovative measures, such as regulatory relief based on organisation verified compliance and the facilitation of verified reporting and information exchange with authorities and interested parties should in particular be investigated.

This is a service contract for 12 months (non-renewable). Value excluding VAT: 150 000 EUR.
