Certificates as a litmus test for good governance in an organization

The certification process is a seemingly never-ending task that requires continuous and detailed monitoring of the organization’s activities, risk identification and management, compliance assurance, internal and external auditing. As soon as you are happy about successfully passing an external audit, you can already see an improvement action plan waiting for you, as well as a constantly changing environment that requires careful market monitoring and response.

In the changing, technologically intensively developing and one of the most global transport and logistics sectors, certification is both a necessity and an advantage in order to ensure successful business development and the implementation of good governance.

The need and benefits of certification

Please watch the video in which the Head of the Sustainability and Quality Department, Loreta Dainytė, talks about the need for certification and its benefits.

Integre Trans’s commitment to good governance

To meet the needs of the stakeholders of the Integre Trans group of companies and to ensure good management practices, an integrated management system has been developed and implemented by integrating the standards ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, ISO 45001:2018, ISO 28001:2007, Good distribution practice guidelines, HACCP, SQAS, TAPA Level 3 TSR and EcoVadis requirements.

Trends and perspectives of the certification process

The increasing importance of sustainability is also popularizing specialized international sustainability evaluation systems and ratings, such as EcoVadis. We can expect that the already significant role of the EcoVadis assessment result and other practices assessing sustainability, with the latest sustainability reporting regulations, will gain even greater importance and become one of the key evaluation criteria of the company for customers, creditors, partners, and will also strongly shape the company’s image in the public space.

In recent years, we have observed another trend – the increase in the frequency of external audits initiated by the clients themselves. Such audits are carried out in order to check whether the company being audited meets the evaluation criteria of important areas for customers, thus in order to manage the compliance of its value chain with the set quality and sustainability standards.

Taking this into account, it can be said that certification will not only “not go out of style”, but will gain more and more importance every year in order to remain competitive and successful in the market.
