Our firm is very proud to support the Conseil des industries durable and to guide various organizations in their progress through the ECORESPONSIBLE Program.
PHILOSOPHY OF PROGRESSION TOWARDS BETTER OVERALL PERFORMANCE
The sustainable development process undertaken by an organization must be part of an overall philosophy for continuous improvement. This must be part of a learning process that aims to implement best practices and achieve established sustainable development goals. Several methodologies and theories are compliant with the program requirements.
The purpose of the ECORESPONSIBLE™ is to recognize any type of organization that has mastered the issues of sustainable development management. From one level to the next, each organization acquires a better understanding of the concepts, includes the concerns and interests of its stakeholders in its process, sets benchmarks, implements concrete actions, aims to achieve precise objectives, and use operational mechanisms to measure progress and report on it.
In 2017-2018, COESIO completely revised the program's specifications to ensure greater accuracy in the assessment of organizational compliance, in collaboration with ECOCERT Canada.
