Supporting Your Sustainability Goals: From Promises to Progress

As a result of climate change, extreme weather events are now affecting one in three people worldwide. This has led to an increase in regulations related to the issue. Two proposed rules, namely the Federal Supplier Climate Risks and Resilience Rule and the SEC Climate Disclosure Rule, could have significant implications for businesses in the United States if implemented. This rising regulatory pressure, together with mounting expectations from consumers and other stakeholders, has prompted numerous companies to establish sustainability targets.

Adopting eco-friendly practices can attract environmentally conscious consumers and position businesses as industry leaders. Being sustainable can give your organization a competitive edge as regulations and consumer preferences continue to evolve.

However, setting sustainability targets is only the first step. Companies must take action to achieve and monitor their progress towards these goals. By doing so, they can ensure success in meeting their sustainability goals while minimizing potential reputational or compliance risks and avoiding the practice of "greenwashing."

What is an Environmental Audit?

An environmental audit assesses a company's environmental practices and policies. This can help you determine whether or not a supplier is meeting their obligations.

Our audits typically include a detailed review of the supplier's current environmental practices and policies. eAQF’s certified auditors will visit your supplier’s factory to conduct an environmental audit for compliance with international standard ISO 14000. They can cover a wide range of topics, including energy use, waste management, water use, greenhouse gas emissions, and biodiversity conservation, among others. Main checkpoints include:

  • Factory profile, licences, certificates, etc.
  • Environmental policy
  • Environmental aspects procedure
  • Environmental program
  • Environmental management system & documentation
  • Working environment
  • Handling and storage of chemicals
  • Waste disposal
  • Resource consumption

Environmental audits for suppliers are becoming increasingly crucial for businesses of all sizes as customers become more eco-conscious. Investing in an environmental audit gives your business a competitive edge and shows that you are committed to quality.

Why an Environmental Audit Matters for Your Business

It can be hard to determine how well your suppliers are following environmental regulations and sustainability best practices, especially when they are manufacturing overseas. Our audits allow you to uncover these details and make more informed decisions about your business.

Adhere to Local and International Regulations

When choosing a supplier for your eCommerce store or Amazon business, you need to ensure that your suppliers follow local and international environmental regulations. Our environmental audit will help you determine whether or not these suppliers are in compliance. We can also help you identify the companies that follow best practices for sustainability.

Appeal to Eco-Conscious Consumers

Sustainability is about more than following regulations. Consumer demand for sustainable products is increasing. According to a McKinsey report, 66% of all respondents and 75% of millennial respondents say that they consider sustainability when making a purchase. Our environmental audit helps you choose suppliers that best align with your customer's values. This gives you an advantage, even in a crowded market.

Increase Customer Satisfaction

When you conduct an environmental audit, it's easier to identify suppliers who can help you achieve your sustainability goals and build a healthier supply chain. This can help you increase customer satisfaction and generate more positive reviews. This is especially important if you are using Amazon to sell your products, as it can improve how often Amazon shows your products to potential customers.

Protect Your Brand Reputation

Environmental audits also allow you to protect your brand's reputation by identifying suppliers that don't meet the quality standards that you set for your business and your customers. It also reduces your overall risk and liability and ensures that your products won't disappoint your customers.

Achieve Your Sustainability Goals
