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, was recently renewed. In France, some thirty companies only 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 and with the close involvement of employees.
