Sustainability


Wikipedia says sustainability is:
“the capacity to endure. …the potential for long-term maintenance of well being, which has ecological, economic, political and cultural dimensions. Sustainability requires the reconciliation of environmental, social equity and economic demands”.

Our consultants engage with clients in a number of different ways to help them make their businesses more sustainable. Organisations of all sizes benefit from adopting a systematic and risk-based approach to managing their environmental impacts, such as that detailed in standards such as AS/NZS ISO14001. Our highly qualified consultants are experts in environmental risk management, and can assist and support your organisation establish and maintain an environmental management system (EMS) that works. They bring to the task experience in a wide range of industries, as well as an understanding of the perspective of regulators.

In an increasingly resource-depleted world, your business will also benefit from more efficient resource management. Energy use and waste creation can only effectively be minimised through good work practices and a supportive workplace culture. We work with you to achieve this transformation change.

Environmental Management Plans (EMP) are an effective way of bringing together in one document the many elements of environmental control at a site, or for a project. EMPs are often required as part of the planning or development approval process. We work with you to ensure your EMP meets all requirements, and most importantly becomes a “living document” that will be used to achieve the desired performance improvements.

The community expects organisations to perform in an environmentally responsible and sustainable way. As a consequence government reporting requirements continue to grow, both in their frequency and complexity. We work with you to achieve compliant and timely submissions to the National Pollution Inventory (NPI). Annual Reports to regulators and other stakeholders, often requiring Board of Directors’ sign-off, need to be accurate and clearly written. Our consultants are routinely helping clients meet their reporting obligations in this way.
