  • 6. The ThreeSecretsof GreenBusinessSuccess
  • 7. Secret No 1:
    Aiming for mere compliance with environmental legislation is a very expensive hobby. If you have an effluent stream containing a certain amount of a toxic material you may have to install a filter or treatment system to reduce its concentration to a legally acceptable level. If the law tightens in the future, you may have to decommission that system and install a more effective
    alternative. This can and does happen several times over a matter of years,
    leading to great expense.
    If, on the other hand, you design the toxin out of the process, then you will never need to purchase or maintain a treatment system again.
    Understandthebusinesscase
    Treat the environmental agenda as an opportunity, not a threat. Grasp it with both hands but, whatever you do, don’t forget you are still running a business.
  • 8. Secret No 2:
    ● eco-efficiency which is largely concerned with quantities of materials and
    energy;
    .
    ● eco-system models which are largely concerned with the type of materials
    and energy and how we use them
    What to do
    Follow the eco-system model of environmental sustainability or, where you can’t, be eco-efficient by a factor of 10.
  • 9. Secret No 3:
    How to do it
    Take some huge leaps and lots of small steps.
  • 10. Preparing To Go Green
    The essentials of change
    Creating a culture for change
    Environmental management systems
    Measuring performance
    Creating a strategy
    External communication
  • 11. Small Steps
    Doing things right
    Pollution incident prevention
    Waste minimization and recycling
    Energy efficiency

  • 13. Final Thoughts
    understand the business case: be proactive, grasp the opportunity, but don’t forget you are a business, not a charity;
    follow the ecological model of sustainability, or where you can’t, be eco-efficient by a factor 10;
    take huge leaps and small steps.
