We often find when chatting to prospective clients that they’ve implemented a few environmental initiatives like carbon offsets or reducing plastic use and are looking for how else to develop their environmental strategy. While this is great in practice, businesses often need to take a step back as putting objectives in place is not the first step in developing an effective strategy. You need to start by identifying your environmental aspects, ie your business activities that have an impact on the environment. This is where we can help.
A Sustainability Health Check is designed for businesses who are looking to improve their environmental performance and need a bit of help with defining what that strategy looks like. Our health checks are a first step gap analysis and have been developed in line with the internationally recognised ISO 14001 standard and include:
- A meeting with key representatives within your organisation to understand your business priorities and what you’re looking to achieve
- A site walk around of your head office to understand how your business works & to identify your key environmental aspects & impacts
- A full report highlighting key recommendations for reducing your environmental impact and providing a simple and practical plan for implementing these changes
The site visit will take between 2-5 hours depending on the size and complexity of your business and you will generally receive your report within 3 weeks of the site visit.
As a part of your Sustainability Health Check, we will cover the following areas:
- Leadership Commitment
- Environmental Policies & Procedures
- Communication (both internal & external to the business)
- Environmental Objectives & Targets
- Continual Improvement
- Supply Chain Engagement
- Triple Bottom Line Strategies (people, purpose & profit)
You can choose to implement any recommended changes yourself or we can support in developing your strategy, either in part or in full. It’s entirely up to you. With Sustainability Health Checks starting from just £899, just think what you’ve got to gain.
