Improving Environmental Performance

Reduce your environmental impacts and benefit financially

Many people still see ‘green’ issues as non-essential. This workshop demonstrates that legislation and financial opportunities make them critical for every manager to think about. The environmental challenge facing organisations in the current climate is clearly laid out, and participants are provided with a set of tools for identifying problematic areas and implementing real change for improved performance. Throughout, the focus is on costs and benefits in bottom-line terms, and tools are supplied to justify improvements.


Practical, skills-based sessions will help managers identify the key issues they must deal with in terms of resource management, waste and energy use, pollution and compliance. Activities will help participants come up with their own ideas for improvements, as well as giving them the tools and skills to influence others to support changes and justify improvements in cost/benefit terms.

The workshop is based on up-to-date information on the environmental challenge for UK business, as identified by bodies such as the DECC, DEFRA, the Environment Agency and the Carbon Trust. There is plenty of scope for delegates to gain insight into specific questions and issues they may face, and delegates are encouraged to bring along specific issues to discuss. The programme can easily be tailored for specific needs.

This topic can also be delivered as a coaching session, as part of an integrated programme, or via an alternative learning method such as e-learning. It can also be adapted to suit your specific needs, including adjusting it to a half-day workshop with a narrower focus, or a two-day in-depth workshop.
