Sustainable development refers to ‘development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’. Through their activities and business relationships, organizations can have a positive or negative effect on the economy, environment, and people, and in turn contribute to sustainable development.
The objective of FSG Certification is to provide transparency on how an organization contributes or aims to contribute to sustainable development, increasing the organization’s accountability.
The Standards contain disclosures that allow an organization to report information about its impacts consistently and credibly. This enhances the global comparability and quality of reported information on these impacts.
"The Certification Process requires that your organisation demonstrates how they implement/align with the FSG 50 standards for Sustainable Development. Certification awards will be given based on how many standards are achieved."
