We are a private, not-for-profit association made up of companies and other organisations from different sectors and of different sizes. Our common feature is our desire for environmental improvement, taking the form of our participation in the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), the scope of which includes at least one centre in Catalonia.

The creation of Club EMAS in Catalonia was the first EMAS network in Europe and renews opportunities for the environment, the economy and the companies to work together closely. Other EMAS clubs have been now created an we hope that similar initiatives will continue to grow up in Europe.

The beginnings
In 2005 a group of EMAS registered organizations demonstrated the need to promote the implementation of EMAS and to develop an extra added value for the EMAS registered companies. In this way, and after a period of consultations with the interested parties, the association was created on June 6, 2006.

With the support of
From its very start, this private initiative originated by the EMAS registered organizations, received the support and collaboration of the Department of Environment and Housing of the Government of Catalonia (the EMAS Competent Body in Catalonia).
