As an environmental management tool EcoCompass was clear and easy to use– Slush
The EcoCompass certificate demonstrates commitment to continuously improving and complying with the following 10 criteria of EcoCompass:
The organisation undertakes to comply with the applicable environmental legislation and regulations
An Environmental Manager has been appointed for the organisation
The organisation surveys the current status of the environmental management and identifies the most significant environmental impacts
The organisation has an environmental pledge by which it commits to continuous improvement in the mitigation of its environmental impact.
The organisation instructs its personnel to take environmental matters into account in its operations.
The organisation has a waste management plan and acts in compliance with the requirements of the Waste Act.
The organisation keeps a record of its hazardous waste, keeps them separated, stores them safely and submits them for appropriate processing for disposal.
The organisation stores and lists the chemicals it uses in compliance with the requirements laid down in the chemicals legislation. MSDSs are available for the personnel and the personnel have been trained on the safe use of chemicals.
The organisation cooperates with our expert to create an Environmental Management Program that contains the objectives and measures for reducing environmental impact. The program is updated annually. The objectives are set again every three years or more frequently. The objectives are set for a minimum of two areas of corporate responsibility and they must be based on the most significant environmental impacts.
Each year, the organisation publishes a report on the actualisation of the actions and the status of the indicators in the Environmental Management Program. The management and personnel are aware of the progress of the environmental work.
