Environmental Auditing is an inspection as to whether the environmental norms are compiled by the industries and other institutions or machinery. It is an essential factor for sustainable development. If environmental norms are complied with then the Environment Health and Safety (EHS) risks are low. For analyzing the compliance, independent and unbiased auditing is necessary. Certain norms have been specified by the International Organization for Standardization in ISO 14000 and 14001 which should be complied with. The major challenge is the lack of compliance with those norms. Further, it has been stated, that third-party auditing can be a tool for bringing reformation in the field of environmental auditing.
