Are you ESG ready? The new IFS ESG Check defines your position and gives orientation

The upcoming Supply Chain Act and the EU’s Green Deal program require companies to address sustainability. The pending regulations may affect many companies,  including you and your suppliers. 

The new IFS ESG Check offers small and medium-sized companies an entry into this complex topic. It helps you to understand your operations’ sustainability and integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles. The unique combination of self-assessment and verification offered by the IFS ESG Check ensures that the data are robust and trustworthy. The result provides an excellent foundation to comply with stakeholders’ expectations and new regulations and plan further steps.
