ZNU Standard - driving sustainable change
In 2013, the ZNU Standard – driving sustainable change was developed to provide even more precise documentation of sustainable management practices and to support companies in their transition to sustainable management step by step. Across Germany, it is the only field-tested and implemented Standard for sustainable management which also integrates sustainable corporate governance alongside the three dimensions environment, economy and social. Furthermore, the certification requires and promotes the development of an integrated management system for more sustainable management. The development of the Standard involved not only the ZNU itself but also partner companies and non-governmental organisations - in 2018 it was also completely revised. In the meantime, a large number of companies have implemented the ZNU Standard, which is externally audited annually. Companies outside the ZNU partner network can also be certified; Johnson & Johnson and the natural cosmetics manufacturer Laverana from Hanover have already done so.
