      • Produce objectives for improvement and a management programme to achieve them

    • Social pressures are also building up from the growing array of interested parties, such as consumer, environmental and minority non-governmental organisations (NGOs), academia and neighbours
    • ISO 14001 is relevant to every organisation
    • From single site to large multi-national companies, high risk to low risk businesses. No matter what sector you are in, whether public or private ISO 14001 is relevant.
  • Example savings
    • Our client was invited to re-tender for the food service contract of a large hospital but the new bid included questions about their green credentials of which they had few
    • We reviewed all relevant parts of the business to identify services where reductions in carbon emissions and improvements in resource management could be made
    • We transferred the electricity contracts to an accredited renewables supplier, placed their telecoms with a carbon neutral provider and recommended rainwater harvesting systems
    • Our client made savings of over £14,000 and not only won the tender, but increased the amount of business they did with the hospital as a consequence of their green credentials.
    Savings of over £14,000
