04) Does your organisation conduct any activities that might be deemed as hazardous to the environment?

August 20, 2021 Environmental, Social and Governance

Answer yes if your organisation conducts any activities that could be perceived to be hazardous to the environment. This could include but is not limited to mining, construction, demolition, manufacturing, chemical processing, or fossil fuels. Please describe your business activities in the notes.

This question helps your clients to understand the nature of your activities and the potential environmental impact, which can help to prioritise work around ESG improvements. If your organisation conducts activities that could be perceived to be hazardous to the environment, this could be a potential risk indicator for clients to investigate further.

How to implement the control:

This is an informational control to inform your clients about your organisation's activities. If you are unsure whether your activities could be deemed as hazardous to the environment, please answer 'yes' and provide as much detail as you can in the notes. This will help your clients assess the risk and work with you collaboratively on how to manage it.
