A better way of doing business

Environmental issues can seem difficult and overwhelming at times - it can be challenging knowing the most effective place to start.

Should we focus on climate change, reducing pollution, resource use or impacts in our supply chain?  What about our customers, employees and others who care about the environmental impact of our organisation?

We've got a track record of helping organisations large and small with getting to grips with environmental sustainability - building capability so that they can help themselves and making them become resilient in the long term.

As an environmentalist, I was very impressed by Peter’s thorough knowledge of environmental management issues, from carbon footprinting to environmental behaviour change to legal compliance.
As a fellow trainer, I highly enjoyed his very effective training methods, for instance most of the training Peter was asking questions rather than lecturing (which facilitates adult learning enormously).

Environmental management systems and ISO14001


Implemention and improvement

Environmental management systems and ISO14001


Implemention and improvement

An environmental management system (EMS) is a structured approach to controlling environmental risks  a framework for improvement and a means to communicate environmental responsibility to your customers and investors.  

One thing is clear - ISO14001 can no longer be a box ticking exercise. 

2015 has bought significant revisions to ISO14001 including an enhanced role for management, ensuring environmental sustainability is reflected throughout the organisation and its influence and to use life-cycle thinking with regards to the external impacts of a product or service.  We can assist with:

  • Environmental review for planning the EMS including determining baseline environmental impacts and developing a road-map for system implementation
  • Design and development of EMS structure, supporting documentation and auditing strategy
  • Design and update register of compliance requirements (legal register)
  • Training to support EMS implementation (senior management workshops, internal auditor training, environmental awareness, transitioning to ISO14001 2015)
  • Gap analysis for ISO14001 2015 for organisations with existing systems - and producing a strategy for how to move to the new standard
  • Integrated management systems - such as support with integrating ISO14001 with ISO9001 and OHSAS 18001
