Our eco-maps provide a graphical representation of the environmental impacts of a project at the affected site. These thematic maps enable users to recognise impacts and their locations at a glance. Eco-maps are a simple, intuitive tool that is particularly suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises. They are an aid to systematic data acquisition, are ideal for communication with stakeholders, and help raise employees’ awareness of environmental issues. They are also a first step towards the introduction of environmental management systems like EMAS or ISO 14001.
Given a choice between two comparable raw materials, products or suppliers, most buyers will opt for the more environmentally friendly alternative. The principle behind green procurement is as simple as that. But because practice is rarely as simple as theory, we advise on assessing products and services, and on achieving a phased transition to green procurement.
Avoiding anything that could later be prejudicial to sustainability – that is the aim of sustainability impact assessments. These weigh up the economic, environmental and/or social impact of existing and planned legislation, and projects, to spot risks at an early stage.
These help give sustainability a tangible meaning, set concrete goals, and track progress and change processes. They make it easier to take account of factors besides those measured by conventional financial performance indicators – aspects that are also crucial to your company’s business success and its benefits to society.
Sustainability isn’t built in a day. Getting there is a process, and a system is essential if the move to sustainable practices is to be more than a one-off effort that soon fizzles out. To make sustainability a permanent part of your company’s operations, you need to systematically address the issues involved. At the heart of this is risk minimisation, and action to tap potential value added along the “triple bottom line”.
A company that fails to build sustainability into its strategy has no prospect of long-term value growth. The sustainability master plan is the road map that sets out your company’s targets, vectors and individual milestones as it advances towards sustainability. We help you meet all the market and legal demands involved. Your sustainability policies can only succeed if they are compatible with your corporate strategy, and will pay long-term financial dividends.
