Sustainability Standards

Sustainability Standards ensure operations are environmentally and socially responsible 

Standards encompass various aspects of Sustainability such as resource efficiency, waste management, ethical labor practices, and community engagement. They are critical in fostering transparency, accountability, and continuous improvement within organisations. By adhering to these Standards, companies can minimise their environmental footprint, enhance their social responsibility, and improve their overall sustainability performance. 

In fact, Sustainability has been a popular theme across World Standards Day, which is celebrated on October 14 every year. The continued focus over many years has been increasing awareness of International Standards and how they contribute to achieving the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
