This is what auditors say:

Oliver Brendle, ZNU-Auditor for TÜV Rheinland Cert GmbH

The Improved Business Sustainability topic is not only relevant to me as a ZNU-auditor, but privately it is also close to my heart. Therefore I am pleased every time with the numerous audits that companies deal with this topic systematically with the goal of continuous improvement in all sustainability-related business processes.

Dr. Carolin Kollowa-Mahlow, Managing Director of ARS PROABTA GmbH

Improved Business Sustainability always entails "continuous learning". The annual ZNU audits makes this process visible to customers, staff and management.
