medac passes eco-audit and receives award for environmental management

medac Gesellschaft für klinische Spezialpräparate mbH is innovative, successful, sustainable and environment-friendly. The pharmaceutical company has proven that economic prosperity and environmental responsibility are not necessarily a contradiction. To achieve perfect conditions for this objective, medac subjected itself to an auditing procedure according to EMAS and DIN EN ISO 14001:2015 for the first time.

At the end of last year, all medac operating sites in Germany as well as the sites based in Europe successfully passed the inspection according to ISO 14001. In parallel, medac passed the strict Eco Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) – better known as the EU eco-audit – in Germany.

The ISO 14001 standard is the internationally acknowledged and applied standard for operational environmental management. EMAS is a voluntary instrument of the European Union and also covers all the requirements of ISO 14001. This comprehensive environmental management and auditing system supports companies in keeping their environmental policy up-to-date, together with continuous improvement. Participating companies must record the effects of their activities with regard to the environment and prove having a process in place for the continuous improvement of their environmental performance. This is inspected and recertified in annual audits by independent auditors and environmental inspectors. Transparency is assured via the annually updated environmental declaration and registration in the EMAS register, both of which are accessible to the public.

The environmental declaration is now available on the medac website.
