The EMASeasy MOVE-IT! project applies the EU Eco-Management and Auditing Scheme (EMAS) cluster certification to regional tourist products or services. The project clusters small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) of a region, which are all part of a value chain of tourism. The value chain and thus the cluster form a competitive tourism service package, linking cultural, economical, ecological and social aspects with their respective added value. Besides SMEs, the project is also focusing on active involvement of different stakeholders – local authorities, regional developers and tourism agencies.
The main goal is to develop an innovative EMAS implementation approach among SME-clusters and promote local tourism related supply chain.
EMAS Easy MOVE-IT! project started in June 2009, duration of the project is 36 months.
EMAS Easy MOVE-IT! project is co-funded by the European Union within the CIP Eco-Innovation initiative of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme
