Environmental management systems

The certification of our environmental management system requires regular assessment of certified plants of VERBUND by external auditors.

VERBUND has implemented environmental management systems in accordance with ISO 14001 at all power plants and grid facilities, as well as the large administrative sites.

Due to the successful external audit carried out at the Grenzkraftwerke (Austria/Bavaria) in 2017, all hydropower plants operated by VERBUND are now externally certified in accordance with the ISO 14001 standard. Our thermal power plants in Mellach are additionally validated according to the EMAS regulation. For these plants, a separate environmental statement is published annually on this website.

New plants are integrated into the environmental management system as quickly as possible and included in the scope of  the certificate.

If you have any questions concerning the scopes of our environmental management systems, please write an email to our sustainability team.
