Environmental & Social Auditing is a strategic practice that involves a comprehensive examination of an organization’s activities, operations, and supply chains to assess their impact on the environment and society. At PGM Nigeria Limited, we recognize the importance of these audits as a powerful tool for enhancing sustainability, ensuring compliance, and promoting responsible business practices.
Understanding Environmental & Social Auditing:
1. Environmental Auditing:
Environmental auditing focuses on evaluating an organization’s adherence to environmental regulations, identifying potential risks, and recommending measures to minimize ecological footprints. This includes assessing energy consumption, waste management, emissions, and the overall environmental impact of operations.
2. Social Auditing:
Social auditing delves into an organization’s social responsibility by examining its relationships with employees, communities, and other stakeholders. It evaluates factors such as labor practices, community engagement, diversity and inclusion, and ethical sourcing to ensure a positive social impact.
Benefits of Environmental & Social Auditing:
- Enhanced Sustainability: Implementing practices that contribute to a more sustainable and eco-friendly operation.
