EMAS Office

The University of Macedonia is the first university in Greece and one of the very few in Europe that has proceeded into the design and implementation of an Eco-Management and Audit Scheme along the European model of EMAS.

The primary goal of the project is to develop the key elements on which the University will base its continuous and systematic effort to reduce its environmental impact on the hosting urban environment. The project’s highest ambition is to evolve into a success story and as a result become an information dissemination centre regarding environmentally friendly behaviour to the citizens of Thessaloniki, and share best practices and lessons learned with other educational institutes, organizations and authorities in the public and the private sector.

Incoming students can participate actively in many actions like the recycling program (paper, aluminium, batteries), help in the design of the informational and promotional campaign for UOM’S recycling program and support it, help in the design an awareness campaign by UOM’s students for UOM’s students, help in the training of university’s personnel and students relevantly to hygiene and safety issues etc.
