2019-06/ ECO Consult is successfully certified along EN ISO 9001:2015 and fulfils all related requirements. The auditor-in-charge praised our operative and management procedures for an "extraordinarily high level of conformity" with ISO standards. The rating, during the final audit, pertained, i.a., to ECO's analytical instruments for attaining client satisfaction ('very good'), electronic documentation for monitoring, controlling and risk assessment ('manifold and adapted to the working environment'), interlinked working via cloud computing and provisions for keeping up sustained market presence. The related certificate of EN ISO 9001:2015 was issued May 28th. A follow-up supervision audit is scheduled. > More NEWS

Coming to grips with sustainability

Sincere action for development means integrated action

Sustainable development indispensably prerequires ecological integrity, economic viability and social equity. This notion underlies ECO's work as a company and is also reflected in our name. But trivial though this may appear 27 years after UNCED, sustainability remains hard to define – and even harder to apply — in practice. For instance, any attempt at reducing greenhouse-gas emissions from forest conversion will fail if we do not touch on land rights, productivity and equitable decision-making. Likewise, stakeholder platforms like the Global Landscapes Forum keep underpinning the need for coordinated, interdisciplinary and inclusive action. > FIELDS OF WORK
