IncreasinglyMoroccan companies choose to set up a “environmental management system”, that is to say an organization to measure and reduce the environmental impacts, then it certified according to ISO 14001. The objective of this article is to provide a performance evaluation of EMS atMoroccan companies ISO 14001 based on a survey based on a questionnaire developed according to the different requirements of ISO 14001. The analysis of the results reveals strong and weak points in terms of the requirements of the EMS elements: Performance of “implementation and operation” is better with a rate of 69.66%, an average performance at the planning (62%) and environmental policy is of the order of 51.44%, unsatisfactory performance in the control (46.81%) and management review (33.33%). We present the elements of assessment of EMS as well as key areas for improvement, and we offer objective recommendations to improve performance of EMS.
