Workplace Law’s environmental support practice specialises in resource efficiency, corporate sustainability, and environmental compliance.

We believe in the benefits of sustainable business, and have been advising on environmental performance for more than ten years. In recent years we have invested in enhancing our environmental support capability to provide increased expertise in resource efficiency – helping clients cut energy bills, manage carbon, reduce waste and streamline materials costs – in response to both regulatory change and demand from within the supply chain.

Our mantra is to help our clients think green, act green: understanding, organising and implementing sustainable operations to increase profitability, enhance competitiveness and ultimately improve performance.

Our qualified environmental support practitioners work closely with you to deliver real benefits. Every client, and every solution, is different.

Workplace Law’s environmental practice has advised a range of clients in the property, facilities management, education and professional services sectors.

We are an approved training provider for the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment, and one of the UK’s leading providers of both the Institute’s Foundation and Associate Certificates in Environmental Management. Workplace Law Environmental won the Silver Award for Best Online Distance Learning Programme at the E-learning Age Awards 2011.
