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!
The ‘Investing in nature guide‘ helps us look at the negative impacts that we may inadvertently be having on nature and explains the simple, practical but often over-looked actions that we can take to Help Wildlife to Thrive.
It also explains how you can influence others and do more across your group or organisation by including nature in your environmental or sustainability policy.
