Purpose: This paper put the premises of a survey that will be carried out between September and December 2015 with the aim to understand the drastic reduction of registered companies under the European EMS. In the paper, data about companies that withdraw from the EMAS Regulation have been analyzed, trying, in particular, to clarify the role of public financial and non-financial incentives. Design/methodology/approach: In the first part of the paper, we analyzed figures and characteristics of the Italian companies that are EMAS registered and those that withdrew from EMAS in the last five years. Given that Member States should encourage EMAS diffusion, in the second part we evaluate the effects of the different measures provided by the Italian local institutions to assist organization to obtain the EMAS registrations. The aim is to verify the effectiveness of local institutions actions and to understand their level of efficacy in order to diffuse EMAS registrations. Findings (mandatory): Data analysis helped to outline the main characteristics of the organizations that are withdrawing from EMAS, which are the small dimension and the localization in Southern Italy. The authors found a significant correlation between the implementations of incentives for EMAS and the number of active registrations. In addition, as the number of measures implemented increases, the same happens for the duration of the EMAS registration. Finally, a good correlation between structural measures to support the registration and its dissemination among Italian organizations has been observed. Originality/value: The output of the research will be a valuable tool for the national and communitarian competent authorities to support the process of revision of Regulation 1221/2009, giving practical thoughts to rethink the EMAS scheme and its policies, in order to make it more attractive to firms.

Abstract

Purpose: This paper put the premises of a survey that will be carried out between September and December 2015 with the aim to understand the drastic reduction of registered companies under the European EMS. In the paper, data about companies that withdraw from the EMAS Regulation have been analyzed, trying, in particular, to clarify the role of public financial and non-financial incentives. Design/methodology/approach: In the first part of the paper, we analyzed figures and characteristics of the Italian companies that are EMAS registered and those that withdrew from EMAS in the last five years. Given that Member States should encourage EMAS diffusion, in the second part we evaluate the effects of the different measures provided by the Italian local institutions to assist organization to obtain the EMAS registrations. The aim is to verify the effectiveness of local institutions actions and to understand their level of efficacy in order to diffuse EMAS registrations. Findings (mandatory): Data analysis helped to outline the main characteristics of the organizations that are withdrawing from EMAS, which are the small dimension and the localization in Southern Italy. The authors found a significant correlation between the implementations of incentives for EMAS and the number of active registrations. In addition, as the number of measures implemented increases, the same happens for the duration of the EMAS registration. Finally, a good correlation between structural measures to support the registration and its dissemination among Italian organizations has been observed. Originality/value: The output of the research will be a valuable tool for the national and communitarian competent authorities to support the process of revision of Regulation 1221/2009, giving practical thoughts to rethink the EMAS scheme and its policies, in order to make it more attractive to firms.
