Innovating and Strengthening Areas in EMA
In La Entidad Mexicana de Acreditación, A.C. (EMA), we are committed to protecting the environment and innovating for its care, so we develop and reinforce projects that improve the environment.

We currently have 8 Greenhouse Gases Validation/Verification Bodies and we have one more in the process of accreditation, which supports compliance with the General Law on Climate Change, part of the Mexican government's strategy to combat this phenomenon.

We have entered the international Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) scheme on sustainable forest management within the framework of certification issued by an accredited and independent third party. For this, we are working together with the regulator of our country responsible for forest certification, the National Forestry Commission, CONAFOR.

With these actions we strengthen our environment for future generations.
