About the Assessor Sustainability Initiative
The QuEST Forum Assessor Sustainability Initiative was launched in 2014. The primary goal of the initiative is to create a TL 9000 measurement class that sets the industry standard for the effectiveness and maturity of a company’s sustainability program. The measurement class enables peer benchmarking and best practice sharing among participating companies. This approach aids companies with establishing their sustainability visions, strategies and goals; as well as identifying collaboration partners. Companies participating in the QuEST Forum Global Sustainability Initiative saw an average of a 17% improvement in their year-over-year sustainability and CSR measurements.
Those wishing to compete for the awards in 2020 need only to join in this great work, improve their performance and enter to win next year. It is open to all companies and has no cost requirement to participate. For more information, visit us at tiaassessor.com.
