Best in Class Integrated Management Systems – Integrating QMS, EMS, OHSAS, IT Security, and Social Responsibility

Companies have to comply to various standards; not just ISO 26000. There are multiple codes and requirements for social responsibility and sustainability that organizations have to comply with. Dr. Wayne Visser, one of the top 20 leaders in social responsibility and sustainability, and Chad Kymal, CTO of Omnex, wrote a paper on this integration & termed it 'Creating Integrated Value: Beyond CSR and CSV to CIV'.

Typically, engagements start with a Gap/Diagnostic Assessment studying the current work practices, processes, business context, HR practices including the Skill/ Talent Management process related to social responsibility and our sustainability practices inside the organization. This assessment then leads to developing an As-Is diagnostic of the company. We then work with the management team to understand their vision and future business strategy and plan the implementation roadmap. We always look for Best-in-Class opportunities including opportunities for Net Zero/Net Positive (Net 0/Net+ ) and integrated value.

Convergance of Environmental, Sustainability and Social Responsibility
