Today (11/02/2022) Ecohub has launched the "whole of business" management system, developed as a risk-based platform, facilitate rapid and responsible business growth towards an economic, social and environmentally sustainable future. Toby Roscoe, EcoHub's Sustainability Manager says "The EcoHub ISMS uses a combination of lean management principles, risk analysis and controls, and continuous improvement principals, aligned with ISO 31000, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, to achieve a fully integrated system for sustainable business management". EcoHub has created the standardized ISMS that will enable corporations to tackle diverse challenges, such as climate change and transition to renewable resources, while at the same time increasing their economic viability.
The implementation of ISMS lays a stable foundation stone from which a business can develop a system for working effectively in the new era that demands sustainable business management and rapid growth towards targeted sustainability goals. The new ISMS is currently being piloted by EcoHub, but will later be available to our clients, providing a risk-based process, which enables simplification of sustainability target setting and creating a corporate roadmap for achieving sustainability, now and into the future.
