Overview

Internal controls help organisations achieve important objectives, sustain and improve performance. A bespoke company sustainability standard with internal controls and an integrated framework enables organisations to perform, improve, mitigate risks to acceptable levels, and support a sound decision-making & governance process.

An effective system of internal control demands more than rigorous adherence to policies & procedures: it requires the use of judgement.

The framework in the form of Customised standards, code of conduct and protocols assist management, boards of directors, internal & external stakeholders in their respective duties regarding internal control without being overly prescriptive.

These customised standards are supported by interpretation and implementation guidelines. They are practical, effective and easy to use for that particular industry. Often further support is provided with capacity development programs.

We work one-on-one with organisations to develop their customised standards for in-organisation use and for the supply chain members.

Some more answers to your questions – FAQ

Codes and Standards or code of practices/protocols/guidelines describe the set of requirements an organization needs to follow in order to meet its own requirements, customers’ requirements or national/international requirements.

In the context of management systems, these standards establish concepts, principles, guidelines and criteria for establishing, maintaining and improving the processes by which an organisation defines and achieves its goals in the areas of Business Risks, Sustainability and Business Excellence. These include areas like social responsibility, labour practices, community and stakeholder engagement, occupational health & safety, environmental protection, business ethics etc.

Voluntary Sustainability Standards (VSS) provide a model to follow when setting up and operating a management system. Like all our codes and standards, they are the result of national and international requirements, industry good practices and therefore offer the benefit of global management experience and good practice.

The innovative and market-based approach of Voluntary Sustainability Standards covers applicable issues like respect for basic human rights, worker health and safety, the environmental impacts of production, community relations, land use planning and others.

The benefits of using Voluntary Sustainability Standards include:

— An important tool to align the entire organisation and its supply chain on one or more relevant issuesmore efficient use of resources

— Improved risk management, and

— Increased customer satisfaction as services and products consistently deliver what they promise

Most management systems standards address specific organisational goals, like product quality, environment or health and safety. They apply to different processes or focus areas within an organisation.

Management systems standards are not product standards; there are no requirements that govern the characteristics of particular products or services in management system standards. These standards apply to organisations as a whole rather than to the products and services they supply.

Some examples are Quality Management Systems Standard (ISO 9001), Environmental Management Systems Standard (ISO 14001), Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems Standard (ISO 45001) etc.

Many of the Management Standards are part of the Voluntary Sustainability Standards family.

These standards can be applied to any organisation, large or small, whatever the product or service and regardless of the sector of activity.
