Purpose of the INDIKO website

The INDIKO website offers a new range of services for businesses and associations, and in particularly a range of indicators enabling them to position themselves in relation to a sector, a specific topic, or even to compare themselves to other organisations and even to websites within a same group.

The INDIKO website also offers the “Indiko Environmental Performance” solution, an industry benchmark, participatory and free that allows companies to measure the environmental performance of their approach according to the new version of the ISO 14001 standard. This participatory solution does not give rise to a specific control by (an) AFNOR (expert) in relation to the collected data.

The “Indiko Environmental Performance” solution delivers simple and relevant environmental indicators, on the basis of anonymous information, for an entire organisation, but also for a website or an individual establishment. It is available to all organisations interested in reducing their impact on the planet.
