ISO 9001 & ISO14001 Certification Used as a Measure in Global Innovation Index

The Global Innovation Index (GII) provides detailed metrics about the innovation performance of 127 countries and economies around the world. The index is the result of a collaboration between Cornell University, INSEAD, and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). It recognises the link between innovation as an engine for economic and social growth in an increasingly knowledge-based global economy.

Two of the 81 indicators used to measure a country’s innovation is the number of accredited certificates (Number of Certificates issued per billion PPP$ GDP) to the quality and environmental management system standards, ISO 9001 and ISO14001.

                                                              

Countries such as Estonia, Italy, Romania, Slovakia and Czech Republic lead both tables for the highest values, whilst the UK ranks 24th for 9001 and 16th for 14001 (above France & Germany), and Ireland ranks 46th & 45th respectively. Surprisingly, USA ranks 94th & 91st of the 127 Countries.
