Isn’t time you discovered how helping the environment will also help your business grow?
The environment plays an increasingly important part in our lives these days, and is a key issue for anyone in business, to varying degrees.
Practically all businesses affect the environment in some way, at the very least through using raw materials and producing waste. Whether it’s an office, a shop or a factory, there are people to accommodate and provide for – toilets, washrooms, kitchen facilities; transport of people and goods; energy usage; packaging; waste disposal, and dozens of other operational needs.
Most companies want to do the right thing, but are not always sure what that is, which is why they need environmental awareness training. But be sure to pick a training crew with a wide range of experience across different industries, to ensure you get the best outcome.
Reduce the impact
Your training crew will suggest that you implement Environmental Management System ISO 14001, in order to assess and monitor your company’s impact on the environment, and highlight ways of reducing both the impact and potential risks.
Most business people will have heard of Environmental Standard ISO 14001, but may not know much about it. Again, your training crew will explain fully, but Environmental Standard ISO 14001 is the world’s most accepted environmental management standard.
It’s an internationally recognised standard put in place to help businesses retain commercial success while still taking responsibility for their actions.
Putting staff through environmental awareness training is highly recommended and there are plenty of benefits for the business.
Clearly a main aim of Environmental Standard ISO 14001 is to protect our environment, by reducing the risk of pollution and damage, and ensuring the efficient use of resources. But there’s definitely something in it for the business owner, too, such as improved efficiency in running the operation – and therefore budget savings.
That’s the beauty of International Standards – realising that doing ‘the right thing’ actually pays off for all concerned!
Imagine being shown ways of doing things more efficiently so that the cost of the operation is reduced, and production is quicker. Imagine finding ways of using reduced (expensive) resources, and again saving money.
Imagine attracting excellent employees, because they are impressed by the business’s willingness to protect the environment. Imagine the great reputation it will give you amongst your customers.
You may have many questions about environmental awareness training, but the answers are all positive!
