Environment and Sustainability

sustainabilityAll organisations have a duty of care to protect the environment from harm caused by their activities.  Environmental legislation continually grows in number and complexity, backed by over 15 years experience of environmental management within a variety of sectors including manufacturing, waste, concrete production, quarrying and construction Vicki Beatty Associates can help you identify and comply with the environmental legislation applicable to your organisation.

The Sustainability agenda is growing in importance and organisations are increasingly required to demonstrate their environmental performance.  Whether this be by development of a management system to gain certification to standards to demonstrate good governance (ISO 14001, BES 6001) or whether it is bench marking your current performance and setting targets for improvement, Vicki Beatty Associates can help you find a solution that is appropriate for your organisation.  By identifying Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and monitoring and measuring these to set targets for improvement not only can you improve your organisation’s environmental performance but financial savings can be made through identifying and reducing waste, unnecessary use of utilities and by identifying efficiencies in the business processes.
