Certification


For the Adamello Brenta Nature Park, quality is a philosophy, a method which guides all its actions and communications. Its aim is to also extend this logic to the surrounding area and those utilising its natural resources. To give concrete form to this philosophy, in 2001 the Adamello Brenta Nature Park set off down the road of certification. 

ISO 14001

In 2001, the Adamello Brenta Nature Park became the first European park to obtain environmental certification in accordance with the international ISO 14001 standard. This was more than just a matter of image. The Park identified certification as a way of improving its organisation. Then as now, certification was also a potent stimulus to improve management through programmes established year by year. Even more important strategically was the aim of involving local businesses and administrations in the certification logic. This was the start of the Qualità Parco Project.



EMAS(Eco-Management and Audit Scheme)

In 2006, the Adamello Brenta Nature Park received European Community EMAS registration. Following verification of the Environmental Review (a complex document produced by the Park to explain its environmental programme and establish goals and objectives for improvement), the Italian section of the EMAS Ecolabel and Ecoaudit Committee registered the Park up to 10 July 2009.
EMAS registration is one of the most important tools adopted by the European Community to promote a new vision of the environment which can be expressed by the ever more familiar concept of "sustainable development". The main points of EMAS registration are:
  • a constant and progressive long term commitment
  • involvement of local stakeholders in the new vision.
EMAS(Eco-Management and Audit Scheme)
Making the Adamello Brenta Nature Park's commitment to the environment public
Informing its stakeholders of the initiatives taken to achieve the objectives of improving the quality of life for man and the environment
Identifying the responsibilities, times, resources and ways of implementing these objectives
The experience of organisations who have gone through this registration procedure demonstrates that EMAS enables significant, quantifiable and measurable environmental performance objectives to be achieved
