Anyone within an organisation who has responsibility for environmental policy.
Everyone who works waste collection, recycling, utilities or heavy industries that at subject to environmental regulations.
All businesses who seek to align their staff to new environmental policies.
Why do you need an environmental policy?
Creating clean industries that maintain our environment is becoming ever more pressing as industrialisation spreads.
Scientific evidence and human experience is shifting public opinion towards enhanced environmental policies from governments and businesses.
On the 12th December 2015 195 nations signed the Paris Agreement with the goal of keeping keeping global warming below 2 degrees celsius. Each nation must make plans to mitigate global warming. For example the UK and France have already said they will ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2040 as part of the agreement.
There is a public record of environmental enforcement action undertaken by the Environmental Agency (HERE). In 2018 fines for individual companies have been in excess of £660,000.
These organisations are at the far wrong end of the environmental protection spectrum. As environmental concerns progressively heighten poor environmental management is becoming commercial and socially unacceptable.
Consequently, the reputational cost of poor environmental policies is increasing all the time. On the other hand many organisations now recognise economic, brand and social benefits from adopting positive environmental policies Green World Awards.
By providing a knowledge foundation this online Environmental Awareness course can help SMEs and large business alike move in the right direction.
The beauty and fragility of plant earth will be shown in Our Plant, a new documentary by Netflix, narrated by David Attenborough which will be released on the 5th April 2019. (3rd party content).
What is Sustainable Development?
Sustainability has become a basic principle of good economic, social and environmental development practices.
Sustainable development is defined in many ways but is usually defined as ‘meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’.
In environmental terms, sustainable development means meeting the needs of the present by using natural resources at a rate at which they can be replenished naturally. On a micro level, we as individuals should also play our part in supporting sustainable practices.
