Looking for a solution to balancing profitability with improved environmental performance?

With the growing costs of energy resources and increased pressure to manage environmental responsibilities, the sustainability of a company’s business practices are becoming key to achieving competitive advantage.

Subsequently more and more small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are recognising the significant business advantages of gaining green credentials.  These can be achieved through employing an effective environmental management system (EMS), such as the internationally recognised ISO 14001.

Setting out the criteria for a cohesive framework applicable to organisations of all shapes and sizes, an environmental management system such as the ISO 14001 equips businesses with the tools for measuring and managing their environmental impact, in order to fulfil their green obligations.  This rationalisation of business operations can help improve employee engagement, whilst providing quantitative KPIs for measurability and control to support further strategies.

Reduce environmental impact, increase profit!

As an internationally recognised mark, the ISO 14001 demonstrates a commitment to improving environmental performance through lowering carbon footprint, reducing fuel consumption, increasing recycling and reducing energy usage.

Vested interest increases as the financial benefits of lower operational costs achieved through greater resource efficiency and waste management are realised. Other Saving incentives for gaining the ISO 14001 can be recognised in terms of strengthening channel relationships through providing assurance to stakeholders that you meet both legal regulations and moral obligations.  Whilst helping to achieve process rationalisation, this can also be an effective PR tool.

Achieve sustainability for the environment and your business.

In essence, there are many incentives for adopting an effective EMS and gaining green credentials.  In exchange for efficient, green business practices, your company could leverage new opportunities for securing competitive advantage.  A win for both your business and the environment!
