Read more about our environmental management in the Environmental Statement of the Belgian Science Policy
By adopting an environmental management system, the Belgian Science Policy shows its interest and its involvement in sustainable development and the protection of our living environment, and proves its desire to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment. The registration of our Eco Management and Audit Scheme - EMAS in 2006 signifies the external recognition of our commitment to sustainable development and our respect for the environment.
Through this voluntarist approach to continuous improvement, the Belgian Science Policy intends to set an example in terms of taking environmental factors into account. Since our department is the one that has invested the most in the issue of sustainable development through its research programmes, it is therefore logical that it has also been the driving force behind good environmental practices.
