Environmental Audit Services

What is an Environmental Audit?

An environmental audit is an on-site visit to a manufacturer’s facilities to assess their environmental management system. The resulting audit report gives you a clear picture of their practices and helps you determine whether they are an environmentally responsible supplier.

These audits are generally conducted based on the ISO 14001 family of standards, which are focused on verifying that the supplier has systems to “identify, manage, monitor and control their environmental issues in a holistic manner.” The key focus areas for these assessments tend to be the following:

  • Air pollution
  • Water and sewage issues
  • Waste management
  • Soil contamination
  • Climate change mitigation
  • Efficient use of resources

The assessments are designed for companies that want to develop and maintain a supply chain that is free of problematic environmental issues. Audit criteria are flexible and can be modified to suit the needs of your organization.

Why Should You Conduct an Environmental Audit?

Environmental audits can help you determine whether a current or potential supplier meets your requirements for sustainability. Conducting an assessment will enable you to:

  • Ensure that your supply chain is free of problematic environmental issues
  • Improve or maintain your reputation as an environmentally responsible organization
  • Achieve strategic business aims related to the sustainability of your products

As your third-party auditing company, we will provide you with an audit report that contains actionable information so you can make the right decisions regarding your supply chain.
