Here's a way to do it:

gr = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}]

nb = CreateDocument[gr, Visible -> False];
SelectionMove[nb, All, Notebook];
FrontEndTokenExecute[nb, "CopySpecial", "EMF"];
NotebookClose[nb];

This is based on a solution posted by John Fultz in March. 
Unfortunately I cannot find the original message on Google Groups.
