Performance Standard 1: Assessment and Management of Environmental and Social Risks and Impacts

Assessment and Management of Environmental and Social Risks and Impacts (2012)

Environmental and social responsibility is critically important in today’s global economy. An environmental and social management system (ESMS) helps companies integrate plans and standards into their core operations—so they can anticipate environmental and social risks posed by their business activities and avoid, minimize, and compensate for such impacts as necessary. A good management system provides for consultation with stakeholders and a means for complaints from workers and local communities to be addressed.
