The topic of "sustainability" is becoming increasingly important in society, including for all small businesses through to corporations. The calculation of emissions, individual customer requirements, compliance with national and international environmental standards and many other specifications and requirements form the basis for supporting climate protection and sustainable corporate management. Every beginning therefore begins with a meaningful analysis that can be evaluated and analyzed using standards and guidelines.

  • Were you confronted with the topic of "sustainability" for the first time in your company?
  • Requirements for your company and in the supply chain (Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LkSG))
  • Which methods & requirements are most important for the company?
  • How do you implement a sustainability concept in the company?
  • etc.

Many unanswered questions that speak in favor of sustainability management in your company.



The requirements placed on industrial companies in the area of sustainability are becoming increasingly demanding. But how is it possible to effectively implement sustainability?

At TopQM-Systems, we have already been successful in implementing sustainability projects at SME companies for a long time. Now we would like to share our valuable experience with you. We have found that the optimal integration of sustainability into an Integrated Management System (IMS) is crucial.


Driving sustainability forward in companies - Integrated Management System (IMS) as a solution

An Integrated Management System (IMS) offers companies a comprehensive solution for effectively integrating various aspects of sustainability. It comprises a variety of measures aimed at promoting sustainable action in all areas of the company.

Aspects of sustainability that can be integrated through an IMS include:

  1. Code of Conduct: An IMS enables the implementation of a code of conduct that sets ethical standards and behavioral guidelines. This ensures that the company adheres to sustainable practices in all business activities.

  2. Compliance guidelines: The IMS supports compliance with legal requirements and regulatory requirements relating to environmental protection, occupational safety and social responsibility. This helps companies minimize potential risks and achieve their sustainability goals.

  3. Occupational safety and environmental protection: The IMS enables the integration of occupational safety and environmental protection measures into company processes. Policies and procedures are developed to ensure that employees work in safe and healthy working conditions and to reduce environmental impacts.

  4. Business ethics: An IMS promotes a culture of business ethics and integrates ethical principles into all business decisions and activities. This includes, for example, promoting fairness, transparency and social responsibility.

  5. Sustainable sourcing of raw materials and purchased parts: Through an IMS, companies can ensure that they consider sustainable criteria when procuring raw materials and purchased parts. This includes, for example, giving preference to suppliers with environmentally friendly production processes or avoiding materials with a negative impact on the environment.

The implementation of an IMS involves the development and implementation of corresponding corporate guidelines, policies and goals. Internal audits verify compliance with sustainability measures, and a coherent reporting system enables the recording and communication of sustainability key figures and results. In addition, education and training programs for employees are part of the IMS to create awareness of sustainability and integrate it into everyday working life.

The holistic approach of an IMS enables companies to better achieve their sustainability goals while at the same time having a positive impact on the environment and society.
