How is your business managing its environmental impact?

Effective management of a business’s environmental impact is becoming increasingly important. Not only does it benefit the environment, it can also be good for business through cost savings, better reputation in the market, resource recovery, improved work health and safety, and compliance with requirements under environmental protection laws.

An Environmental Policy is a simple and versatile document for any business that is committed to managing all environmental aspects of their work.

The policy communicates to staff, customers, and other stakeholders how the business will minimise its impact on the environment using risk management principles and displays a positive commitment to consider environmental impacts when making business decisions.

The Environmental Policy outlines:

  • your commitment as a business
  • your commitment to staff and contractors, and
  • your commitment to the community.

These commitments may include: overarching environmental objectives and targets, operational procedures for environmental issues, training and education for staff, monitoring performance against set environmental controls, consultation with stakeholders, and identification of areas for ongoing improvement. It also includes a commitment to review the policy annually (or other timeframe that is suitable for the business) to ensure it remains relevant and appropriate.

The Environmental Policy is suitable as a standalone policy or as a component of an overarching Environmental Management System.

The policy is a flexible and easy to implement template, with an ability to tailor it specifically for your business needs. It is compatible with Microsoft Word and editable to add your business’s brand logo and colours.
