Vivendi: European environmental EMAS certificate renewed for its head office

 

The registration of Vivendi’s head office to the European Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), which recognizes the company’s efforts in taking environmental actions, has been renewed for the second consecutive time. In France, only 38 companies were awarded this certificate by the Ministry for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy.

Vivendi was first awarded this certificate in 2009. The renewal confirms the Group’s continuous efforts to improve environmental performance.

More stringent than the international ISO 14001 standard, the EMAS certificate is one of the most demanding schemes in the field of environmental management on a daily basis. It takes into account how close employees are involved in this process.
