Comexi Group has been recognised for the EMAS environmental excellence certificate, granted in 2013 by the European Union. Narcís Xifra, board member of Comexi Group, collected the award from the director of the Directorate General for Environmental Quality from the Territory and Sustainability Department at the Generalitat de Catalunya, Assumpta Ferran, during the EMAS award ceremony held in Barcelona on 30 October.
This certificate strengthens Comexi Group’s commitment to improving its environmental management, within the framework of its Integrated Management System, which has also enabled the company to advance in the fields of Quality, Safety, Work Safety, and Innovation management.
The importance of the EMAS eco-management and audit scheme
EMAS is a voluntary tool that enables organisations to take on full responsibility for environment issues, improve their environmental behaviour and set an example with their public environmental statement (impacts, goals and indicators, improvements obtained…) which is available for all interested parties. Only 22 organisations in Catalonia received this certificate between 2013 and 2014.
