Thinking green means putting sustainability at the heart of everything you do, from the start of the supply chain through to the point of delivery. Having an understanding of the requirements of environmental regulation and the risks of non-compliance can help you understand the contribution that effective environmental management can make to enhanced business performance.
Acting green means:
delivering on corporate sustainability in practice – improving efficiency by managing resources, carbon, water, energy and waste more effectively;
attaining the ISO 14001 Environmental Standard and committing to continuous improvement;
integrating sustainability into management reporting and day-to-day operations; and
auditing environmental performance to ensure compliance, and protect brand reputation.
Here are some of the ways we can help you think green, act green.
