The company that implements and maintains a process to identify all aspects of its activities, products and services that have an actual and/or potential impact (environmental, social and cultural) against selected Performance Areas.

The company that consults with key stakeholders on the discovered aspects with significance against selected environmental areas, is on a good route to improvement.
