​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A commitment to the environment

AENOR offers the largest catalogue of environmental certificates, validations and verifications, which allow an organisation to accredit their environmental commitment, through the activities that it carries out or the products that it creates or sells, minimising environmental impact and promoting a better management of resources. The assessments conducted by AENOR help to make environmental commitment a factor of competitive differentiation.

AENOR's support for good environmental practices encompasses general environmental management systems such as ISO 14001, systems that address areas such as product ecodesign and energy management, environmental product declarations or issues concerning specific sectors, such as forestry. AENOR has increased its support for companies as regards the commitments they undertook as part of the Kyoto Protocol and is the first Spanish entity to be accredited by the ONU.
