How Sustainable Is Your Company?

You can find out where you are on your sustainability journey by filling out our 28 point questionnaire here. The questionnaire covers 4 areas of Social Compliance, Environmental Sustainability, Raw Materials and Supply Chain & Digitilization.

We invite you to take this short survey before conducting the Orbit Criteria study, which provides a more comprehensive analysis.  Orbit Criteria is one of the most important tools used by our company in establishing a sustainability strategy. With its comprehensive content, it covers questions about all aspects of your business and production cycle to form the basis of your custom made sustainability roadmap.

SOCIAL COMPLIANCE

The first steps of the sustainability journey are in the area of social compliance. By answering the Social Compliance section of our survey, businesses can identify their current status for personnel practices and Corporate Social Responsibility efforts and set their goals to raise social compliance standards.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

Green Business is the focus of production. It is unlikely to produce on sustainable basis without a green business in production. The Environmental Management section of our survey can give you information about the starting points by evaluating the Green Business principles in a few questions.

USE OF RAW MATERIAL

Raw material selection is one of the most critical topics of the entire industry. Sustainability starts with solution-oriented design options and environmentally friendly raw material choices. You can use the questions in our survey to understand your current initiatives and identify new ones in this field, where great changes can be made with the right decisions.

SUPPLY CHAIN & DIGITALIZATION

Initiatives to be transparent in the supply chain can take companies a few steps ahead of its competitors. Providing transparency and traceability with digital solutions increases the reliability of your business and also facilitates your internal operations. By answering the questions in this section of our survey, you can find ideas for your work in the field of supply chain and digitalization.
