Environmental Management

By adopting an environmental management system, the RAOS shows its interest and involvement in sustainable development and in the protection of our environment, and proves its desire to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment. The registration of its Eco Management and Audit Scheme - EMAS in 2006 signifies the external recognition of its commitment to sustainable development and its respect for the environment.

Through this voluntarist approach to continuous improvement, the RAOS intends to set an example in terms of taking environmental factors into account. Since its department is the one that has invested the most in the issue of sustainable development through its research programmes, it is logical that it has also been the driving force behind good environmental practices.


EMAS stands for  "Eco-Management and Audit Scheme". This European label is a guarantee of environmental quality. The institution or organization that wishes to be registered EMAS is committed to implement an environmental management system (EMS) and to enroll in a structured approach, defined in a European regulation.
The objective of the environmental management system (EMS) is to improve the impact of the activities of an institution or organization on the environment. We can distinguish:
impacts associated with the operation of an organization, its supply (eco-management): energy, water, paper, waste, mobility consumption.

impacts related to the organization's mission / objectives: how can an organization better take into account respect for the environment in its fields of activity / in achieving its objectives ?
