Networking activities are carried out with the aim of creating new connections with other LIFE projects dealing with environmental legislation, environmental liability in protected plant and animal species and their habitats. We are also in contact with LIFE projects working in other areas, to exchange experiences, gain new contacts for further actions and to spread the information and results of the EcoLex Life project. Throughout the project implementation, we are networking with various organizations that work in the area of environmental liability and have an active impact on reducing the risk of environmental damage.

networking with LIFE projects


The main objective of the LIFE B.R.A.V.E.R. (LIFE15 ENV/IT/000509) project is to support the full integration of EMAS into EU environmental legislation, by reducing and simplifying the administrative costs and burdens of EMAS-registered companies. B.R.A.V.E.R. intends to carry forward the activities of the earlier LIFE project, B.R.A.V.E. by encouraging the adoption of measures for regulatory relief to support EMAS adoption in more countries, regions and sectors. In particular, the project aims to test and disseminate a new approach to valorise EMAS, outlining new opportunities to promote the adoption of “soft instruments” amongst companies, including SMEs. This new method is based on evaluating new regulation and regulatory relief proposals, and assessing their feasibility and their cost-effectiveness for organisations and institutions through regional and national testing. The relationship between project actions on EMAS-registered companies will be analyzed with regard to the problems targeted and to environmental performance.

EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) is an EU-level management tool designed to help registered organisations enhance their environmental performance and credibility. The EMAS scheme operates through incentives that reward organisations that make commitments to sustainability.
