Electronic Download (PDF)
WQA/ASPE/ANSI S-801-2015: Sustainable Management was reaffirmed in its entirety in 2021. This standard is used to evaluate a company’s governance and management practices, relative to sustainability, at the corporate and production facility level. It focuses on the following core attributes:
- Corporate social responsibility and healthy/safe working conditions
- Organizational sustainability (e.g. policies, communications, transparency/reporting, environmental monitoring and improvement)
- Sustainable supply chains
WQA/ASPE/ANSI S-801 is a prerequisite for certification to two WQA sustainability-related product standards, WQA/ASPE/ANSI S-802: Sustainable Water Treatment Media and WQA/ASPE/ANSI S-803: Sustainable Drinking Water Treatment Systems, both of which were last revised in 2017. Companies and facilities cannot be certified to S-801, but companies whose facilities conform to the requirements of S-801 are eligible to have their products evaluated for certification to S-802 and S-803.
