Environmental Management

For more than 15 years, our public service has been advancing continuously towards excellence in the service we provide our citizens. With a constant eye on evolution, we have gradually implemented certain key elements to ensure we operate efficiently.

It rapidly became clear to us that we had to take into consideration our environmental impact, especially since it is directly linked to our missions.

The registration of our environmental management system according to the EMAS regulation since 2006, emphatically bear witness to our efforts and our performances as an innovative public service, respectful of the environment and our heritage, with a concern for our citizens. A striking fact: in 2006, we were among the first federal public services to be recognised for our environmental approaches.
