Global warming and other environmental issues have made it critical that companies today ensure that their systems and operating methods do no harm to the environment. The need for businesses to address environmental issues has never been greater. Environmental issues impact on every organisation. All organisations have a legal responsibility for the impact they may have on the environment for example, a duty of care to manage waste correctly.
The rising costs of energy and raw materials, growing awareness of stakeholders and increasing environmental legislation are forcing organisations to address their own environmental performance.
Many organisations have identified that tackling environmental issues can bring benefits to their business including reduced waste and utility costs, reduced liabilities and access to new markets and investors.
Large organisations recognise that they are responsible for the environmental impacts of their supply chain. They use environmental management systems (EMS) to help to minimise environmental impacts and are increasingly asking their suppliers to do so, as a key component of tendering and supply procedures.
To ensure that this level of impact remains within acceptable limits, there is a need to comply with environmental legislation. Environmental legislation covers areas relating to aspects such as air quality, energy, hazardous waste, packaging, solvents, waste from construction and water.
Not complying with environmental legislation can have severe consequences and there are harsh fines, penalties or even a prison sentence for those companies who neglect their environmental responsibilities. As we all become convinced of the need to tackle the problems of climate change and resource scarcity/sustainability, reducing our carbon footprint becomes an important issue for all organisations. However, no company can do this without the co-operation of its workforce. Environmental awareness training aims to help workers understand the environmental aims of the company and the need for “green” principles.
