Greening Your Organisation

Greening Your Organisation

A key driver in investing time, energy, and sometimes money, in making your organisation more energy efficient, waste-conscious, and resource-light is that it delivers bottom-line cost savings that can be used to fund your key services or mission.

However, these actions will also play a part in helping tackle some of our most pressing global challenges, safeguarding access to resources and quality of life for future generations.

Check out our webpages and resources to get started:

Responsible Resource Use
Your organisation could reduce overheads by using less energy and water, reducing waste, and encouraging transport efficiency.

Healthy Workplace
As we now spend more time on average indoors than outdoors it is important to have a healthy work environment.

 

Sustainability Policy

One of the best ways to demonstrate commitment to ‘greening’ your organisation is through having an agreed Sustainability Policy that is understood and respected by all your staff, visitors and volunteers.

The policy can be as simple or detailed as needed for the size of your group but it can help share understanding about your group’s beliefs and values and also ensure that any actions that you choose to take are carried out consistently within your organisation.

‘Greening’ your organisation does not need to stop at energy and water consumption – remember to take a look at how you can act on climate change and make space for nature too!
