Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the sustainability sector has experienced a major impact to their onsite auditing activities, resulting in many organisations adopting interim solutions to maintain oversight of compliance. ISEAL commissioned ASI to identify possible approaches, good auditing practices, and potential areas for alignment between sustainability standards. This report contains findings from a high-level study of COVID-19 responses from 41 organisations made up of voluntary sustainability standards (VSS), certification bodies (CBs), accreditation bodies (ABs) and other sustainability initiatives. Insights from an in-depth study of a further 11 shortlisted organisations are included.
You can find the report as well as the recording and slides of the webinar where it was presented on 09.09.2020 below.
