The Community Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (hereafter EMAS) was originally established in 1993 by Regulation (EC) No 1836/93. This voluntary scheme was originally restricted to companies from industrial sectors. EMAS was revised in 2001 by Regulation (EC) No 761/2001 to allow participation by organisations from all economic sectors. A second revision of EMAS was recently undertaken, called EMAS III, reflected in Regulation (EC) No 1221/2009. This new regulation foresees the development of sectoral reference documents on best environmental management practice .

The public administration sector is made up of over 80,000 organisations throughout Europe, each with their own structure, laws and governance style. Public Administration activities thus have a large influence over activities with significant environmental consequences in terms of resource depletion, climate change, air quality, water quality and biodiversity.

For these environmental aspects (direct and indirect), msolutions provides consultancy and solutions in order to increase sustainability.
