What do I need?
A Sustainability Action Plan and/or a Sustainability Policy. At its heart, a sustainability policy is an organisation’s commitment to practices and standards that cover all areas of sustainability.
Sustainability Policy or Plan – Why should my business have one?
A sustainability policy provides a roadmap for your business and will help create a stronger reputation with environmentally conscious consumers. It describes your organisation’s commitment to sustainable development and the strategy, approach or road map to achieving these goals.
Having a sustainability policy can have positive financial impacts. It may help streamline business processes, which may create less waste and reduce energy use. A sustainability policy can also increase your standing with stakeholders, and improve your brand recognition, giving your organisation a competitive advantage.
