Would you like to have a business that is socially and environmentally responsible, but aren’t sure how to get started or what the best practices are for sustainability?
If so, you’re not alone. I hear this from many small businesses.
While you could engage in one-off projects, doing a few things here and there, taking a more systematic approach will generally help you to develop your sustainability program more quickly and efficiently.
The best way to do this is with a comprehensive Sustainability Assessment that will help you to quickly develop and grow your sustainability program.
It will assess your company’s operations against best practices in a wide range of areas, including governance, employee benefits & engagement, waste reduction, resource conservation, carbon footprint & toxics reduction, product development & life cycle, supply chain & procurement, and giving back. These areas represent the key impacts that companies are working to improve upon at this time.
After completing the assessment, you’ll receive a 5-year sustainability action plan with specific recommendations for developing and improving your sustainability program. The plan will include clearly identified short-term, medium-term, and long-term initiatives that list the benefits of each project along with resources and examples.
With your sustainability action plan, you will have a roadmap to establish a solid foundation for your sustainability program, move from easier to more challenging projects, and run a better business.
If your company is just starting to have a discussion about sustainability, a Sustainability Assessment will jumpstart your efforts and save you time and money because you won’t have to figure out on your own what to do or waste your time on one-off projects.
