Hello, I am looking for an "official" definition of "environmental performance". Any idea?

Thank you for your interest in the European Environment Agency (EEA).

You may wish to refer to Regulation (EC) No 1221/2009 on the voluntary participation by organisations in a Community eco-management and audit scheme (EMAS).

Article 2(2) defines 'environmental performance' as the measureable results of an organisation's management of its environmental aspects. You may access the EMAS Regulation at

We hope this information may be useful to you.

Kind regards,
