First business, then sustainability? That is how it is usually done. For us it has been different from the very beginning: sustainability is our business. We are committed to international sustainability norms and standards, such as the 17 UN SDGs and the Paris climate goals. For us, science and stakeholder interests are not just accessories, but the foundation.
We conduct our sustainability research exclusively in accordance with recognised and methodologically sound procedures. We have defined strict quality requirements for all research activities and client processes. To align these even more closely with recognised standards, imug rating has been undergoing an external audit in accordance with the ISO 9001:2015 quality management standard since 2019.
