What can your business or workplace do?

Businesses will benefit from reducing their environmental impact and being more sustainable by:

  • making cost savings from using resources more efficiently, such as cutting energy, water use and waste.
  • accessing new markets by developing sustainable products and services.
  • protecting reputation and credibility.
  • being prepared for future changes and policies.
  • attracting staff and improving morale – having a strong ethos of sustainability is increasingly important to employees.
