It can be tough trying to instigate changes to work place practises.
Under taking a sustainability audit will establish where wasteful processes in the workplace can be improved and then the changes adopted into future business policy.
By taking the time to ask simple questions about what resources and systems your company currently uses – small changes will lead to reductions in unnecessary wastage across the board. This is all a part of the sustainable development process – so your company can move toward cleaner and greener practices.
Can your company afford to NOT proceed with a sustainability audit and make the move to more sustainable practices? Sustainability is a strong marketing tool. To be perceived by stakeholders as having failed to adopt the practices of environmental movement can be so counterproductive that there is no doubt revenue will be lost to more enviro-savvy competitors. As stated by Brian Murphy, Professor of Marketing at Massey University “Leading businesses are sustainable businesses, implying being in business for the long term by being responsible stewards of resources.”
