Our mission – Standards for a sustainable future
We strive for our standards to be widely used and nationally recognized. We accomplish this by welcoming new members to our association, adding new approved auditors and issuers to our stable and reaching out to more businesses, organizations and events who wish to use our standards and methods.
The SUSA association had its infancy in the early 00s when several of our founding organizations such as the city of Gothenburg, Järfälla municipality, FR2000 among others, started cooperating in developing a shared standard for environmental management systems.
The association Swedish Environmental Base was formed and our first standard was approved.
The association Swedish Quality Base was formed by Cowi AB, Miljöstegen, RSM&CO AB, SEE U, Sustema, Yggrasil and Miljökompassen. The first standard was approved in 2016.
The two associations merged under the name SUSA-sustainable standards. The shared vision was to expand our work in developing standards for a sustainable future.
