What is this?
The development and implementation of a plan that will reduce the impact that your business has on the environment through its use of natural resources.
Why do I need it?
A business model that reduces the use of natural resources contributes to the long-term sustainability of your company: depletion or scarcity of natural resources affects costs and operational viability. Reducing your consumption of raw or processed natural materials – by adjusting behaviours, changing production processes or by using alternative or recycled materials – not only contributes to the bottom line for the medium and long terms but will also demonstrate that your business values align with those that are increasingly being seen across society
Reducing your use of natural resources is not just good environmental sense, it’s good business sense too.
What’s the process?
Working with you, we’ll develop a strategy that’s appropriate and proportionate for the size and complexity of your organisation and the operations that it conducts. This is usually an iterative process which will produce the plan that’s right for you by
- Establishing a baseline
- Setting targets
- Identifying the actions that will allow you to achieve your targets
- Set up the arrangements required to monitor and report your progress.
