New Sustainability Certification Program from NSF International
Pilot program launches for organizations seeking certification.
As climate change is a looming threat, a new program will start to pursue new sustainability standards. According to an article from PR Newswire, the pilot program is expected to last three months and will provide an orientation to the 21 prerequisites of the standard and help participating firms decide if they are ready to pursue certification. For professional services providers, the prerequisites for certification include: documentation of ethical codes of conduct, a publicly available environmental policy, demonstrated reduction of GHG from company services, a commitment to support nonprofits and/or NGOs or provide pro bono services, and policies to implement supplier diversity and increased spending with diverse suppliers.
