EMAS and waste management

Avoiding waste is a top priority at the Energy Community Secretariat. Many of the established workflows have been already switched to electronic procedures (e.g. procurement, accounting, travel, daily correspondence, HR-related processes).  However, waste cannot be entirely avoided, and thus should be properly collected and disposed of. The disposal of waste at the Secretariat’s premises follows the principles of recycling and safe disposal.

To increase the share of recycled waste was included as an action into the Secretariat's Environmental Programme. An environmentally certified cleaning company supports the Secretariat with this task. Moreover, the Secretariat defined a solid recycling and environmentally friendly waste disposal policy as a key tender requirement for its catering services.
