Welcome to a short summer edition of DQS Compact!

 This issue of our customer journal continues the series about   the importance   of Occupational Health and Safety and how   the new ISO 45001 can help   organizations improve their safety   record in the interest of stakeholders,   employees and the   public. The series will be continued in each of this year's   upcoming issues, so be sure to collect them all.

 If you are already certified to BS OH 18001, you will be interested to read about   the Readiness Review to prepare for your transition to ISO 45001.

Droughts, floods and record-breaking temperatures – it certainly looks like we are heading right into a climate catastrophe. Presumably, 2019 will be another record year in terms of CO2 emissions – the concentration will be at the highest point since 400.000 years ago. It’s news like these that confirm the urgent need for coordinated action, on the ground and in standardization work. Here’s some of what we are doing.

DQS CFS has been approved to verify Climate Bonds according to the Climate Bonds Standard. 

The Climate Bonds Certification applies to bonds that are consistent with the 2 degrees Celsius warming limit of the Paris Agreement. As an approved verifier, we will be providing assurance to issuers and investors that bonds contribute to a low-carbon economy. The Climate Bonds Initiative places high demand not only on their own product but as well on their verifiers, which makes us particularly proud of this achievement by our subsidiary. More

 

Moving up to the standardization level, the CEO of DQS CFS, Dr. Sied Sadek, has been nominated as a member of the ISO Committee on environmental labelling.The committee is focused on standardization in the field of communication of environmental aspects of products and services. Such communication includes environmental labels and claims like e.g. carbon footprint declarations.

The standardization of terms and concepts is an important step towards sustainability, as it enhances comparability and prevents greenwashing. The clear definition of terms is also a basis for a healthy development in the area of Sustainable Finance. Both the German government as well as the European Union have declared that they intend to grow in this area. Without intelligent and effective environmental labelling, this development won’t be possible. We are pleased that Dr. Sadek will actively support this important cause as a member of theISO Committee. More

 

 This is alswhere International Standards ISO 14064-2   and ISO14064- 3 prove their value. ISO 14064-2 is used to quantify the   amount of reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions or removal   enhancements, while ISO 14064-3 serves to verify reports developed using 14064-2   and other project-level GHG quantification.

 The standards are applicable to any project in any sector or region or organizational   size/type and support the harmonization of GHG tracking and valuation, which will   support consistency and comparability needed by stakeholders, especially investors.   More information can be found here.

DQS Zagreb d.o.o. is proud to announce the certification of IMPOL Group to EN 9100:2018

27th May 2019

IMPOL is a long-standing and successful manufacturer of high quality aluminum alloys for the civil aircraft industry. Its advanced technology allows the co-founder of The Centre of Excellence Space-SI to provide aluminum alloys and parts that are able to sustain extreme vibrations when satellites are launched, followed by thermal stress and radiation in space. And because quality attracts quality, IMPOL decided to put the certification to one of the most demanding industry standards, EN 9100 for the aerospace industry, into the hands of DQS.

Preparations for this multi-company, cross-country certification of one of the biggest Slovenian companies with 2348 employees located across Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia started in 2017 already. The audits were carried out with the support of highly specialized aerospace auditors from Germany and in May 2019, DQS was able to confirm that the the management systems of IMPOL Group members IMPOL d.o.o., IMPOL LLT d.o.o., IMPOL PCP d.o.o., IMPOL- FINAL d.o.o., IMPOL R in R d.o.o., te IMPOL 2000 d.o.o. fulfill the requirements of EN 9100:2018.

The picture shows, from left: Andrej Kolmanič (CEO IMPOL Group), Irena Šela (CFO IMPOL Group), and Darko Hibler (CEO DQS Zagreb) at the presentation of the well earned certificate. Now that IMPOL is registered in the OASIS database of certified aerospace suppliers, the Group hopes for more opportunities for product placement on the demanding aerospace industry market.

IMPOL Group is also becoming an established supplier in the automotive industry and pursuing opportunities in other demanding industries, such as the aerospace industry. These efforts are made on both the investment and the organizational level. Equipment investments amount to approximately 40 million Euros every year. The Group also continuously works on efficient organisation so as to ensure the production of demanding high-quality products.

The certification opens further opportunities on the challenging high-quality products market and the certificate itself strengthens the IMPOL Group brand. The OASIS database will also help increase the Group’s visibility in the aerospace industry and the production restructuring facilitate the achievement of greater added value.

SUCCESSFUL ASSURANCE REVIEW: DQS APPROVES SYMRISE SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2018

For the fifth year in a row, Symrise, one of the largest producers of fragrances and flavors in the world, has engaged DQS to provide assurance over its GRI sustainability record. After a thorough evaluation, our assessors have come to the conclusion that the Symrise Sustainability Record is a credible and comprehensive representation of the sustainability performance of Symrise.

Third-party assurance is an increasingly popular way to safeguard the credibility and accuracy of sustainability reports. With positive experiences from last years’ assurance in mind, Symrise again decided to rely upon DQS as its partner for independent review.

The assurance process

The Symrise Sustainability Record was published in accordance with the GRI Standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) published in 2016 as well as the new standards on water and wastewater (303, 2018) and occupational health and safety (403, 2018). The Sustainability Record was prepared in accordance with the GRI standards “Comprehensive” option. This means that Symrise discloses all the relevant information and is fully accountable on all essential topics. The Sustainability Report also contains a separate non-financial report in accordance with Section 289b (3) of the German Commercial Code (HGB).

For the actual assurance, the DQS team relied on the AA1000 Assurance Standard (AA1000AS 2008 with 2018 Addendum), a publicly available standard for third party verification. The assurance audit was conducted in accordance with a Type 2 assurance, which consists of:

  • Evaluating the company’s sustainability framework and processes using the inclusivity, materiality and responsiveness criteria of the AA1000 AccountAbility Principles (AA1000APS 2018), and
  • Evaluating the quality of the reported sustainability performance information.

The assurance encompassed the entire report and focused on all figures, statements and claims related to sustainability during the reporting period January 2018 to December 2018, as well as historical figures where relevant.

Outcome: The assurance statement

On the basis of the methodology described above, our auditor team has concluded that the report provides a credible and fair representation of Symrise’s sustainability profile, and that the statements and figures achieve the required level of reliability and accuracy.

The Assurance Statement, which summarizes the main findings of the assessment, can be downloaded here. The full Symrise sustainability record is available online and can be viewed here.

Symrise is a global supplier of fragrances, flavorings, cosmetic base materials and substances as well as functional ingredients. Its clients include manufacturers of perfumes, cosmetics, food and beverages, the pharmaceutical industry and producers of nutritional supplements and pet food. With sales of about € 3.2 billion in 2018, Symrise is among the global leaders in the market for flavors and fragrances. Headquartered in Holzminden, Germany, the Group is represented in over 40 countries in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, Asia, the United States and Latin America.
