The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted the ability of many sustainability systems to perform on-site audits. Many have had to implement new policies and adapt to new ways of working. In many ways, this forced many sustainability systems to rapidly innovate during the pandemic, by embracing novel technologies and piloting new approaches to assess sites remotely.
Based on a consultation with various stakeholders, ISEAL has produced a practical guide that captures some of the core elements and good practices that have emerged as a result of this period of innovation. It is intended both as a source of inspiration and reference for sustainability systems that are seeking to strengthen their remote auditing practices. It also offers useful tips on how to effectively plan, prepare and implement a remote audit in contexts where it is feasible to do so.
The aim of this guide is for sustainability systems and assurance partners to have a shared understanding of good practices for integrating remote auditing techniques into their assurance systems.
