My objective is to guide small and medium enterprises on a path with continuous improvement of their environmental and climate performance. As the successful implementation of measures, requires the participation of employers, the clear communication of this additional corporate objective is essential. It must be clear to everyone why specific procedures need to changed, and what the benefits are. During a workshop the urgency to act will be communicated and discussed. This will ensure that the idea of reducing the ecological and carbon footprint of the enterprise is supported by employees and that everyone can be part in the development of measures.
To quantify the environmental impacts of a company and to disclose any improvement made, an analysis of the current state and the potential for improvement is necessary. This will also allow to track progress made. Hereby the following areas are of importance:
- Energy Management: heating/cooling, lighting, ICT, appliances/machines
- Mobility: daily ways to work, business trips, delivery routes
- Procurement/Resource use/Eating habits at work
- Waste management
