SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENT OF MORE THAN 31,508 COMPANIES AND THE KEY ROLE OF QUALIFIED AUDITORS.
The growing trend of environmental management system (EMS) and occupational health and safety (SCR) schemes continues, having arrived at 31,508 and 27,805 certified sites, respectively. (Accredia 2022 data)
Against this backdrop, being recognized as an organization that cares about the environmental and health and safety impact of its activities and employees is a genuine added value to its customers and stakeholders.
UNI EN ISO 14001 certification attests that the certified entity, whether it is a company or an organization of any size, has an Environmental Management System that complies with the standard, that is, one that respects the environment and has implemented procedures that do not harm it.
Auditors and Lead Auditors qualified for the 14001 standard play a role of considerable importance within the green value chain. Their expertise and professionalism are increasingly in demand in a marketplace focused on the adoption of sustainable practices. In particular, when an auditor decides to make his or her expertise available to companies by certifying it with a third-party, accredited body such as Ricec International, he or she is making a very important choice that contributes to increasing confidence in his or her work and in the professionalism offered to companies.
Taking care of the planet and preventing negative impacts on the environment, are also fundamental goals for the international community.
Skills certification is able to contribute to the socially shared goal of spending the resources made available by Europe early and well according to the principles of the Next Generation EU (NGEU). The central pillar of Next Generation EU is, in fact, the RRF mechanism, which, among other objectives, aims to support interventions that contribute to the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, consistent with the European Green Deal.
The role of certified professionals becomes central in helping to assess and identify subjects and projects for funding, according to the criteria of the European Taxonomy and the Do Not Significant Harm (DNSH), which requires that interventions envisaged by national NRPs do not cause any significant harm to the environment.
