Sustainable Businesses, Municipalities and Schools conserve both financial and environmental resources, reduce greenhouse gases and other pollution, and promote social well-being. Sustainable organizations are more resilient and better prepared for climate change and related challenges. Sustainability is not just the right thing to do for your community and the environment, but also a sound business decision.
Sustainability leadership is rewarded in many ways. It not only can reduce costs, it can attract rebates, grants and awards.
A multitude of environmental and social challenges including rising energy costs and regulations, extreme weather, traffic congestion and increasing costs of living are impacting us all. It is imperative for all organizations – Businesses, Municipalities and Schools – to have a Sustainability Plan in place with clear benchmarks and deliverables. Moreover, Sustainability Plan Development is a perfect opportunity to create synergies between stakeholders, which not only creates buy-in but stimulates fresh ideas and strengthens relationships.
A key component of Sustainability Planning is Policy Development. Crafting Sustainability Policies, such as Environmental Preferential Purchasing Policies (EPPPs), are vital to help maintain progress and guide the organization’s future leaders and other stakeholders.
Areas of Sustainability Planning include energy, water, building design, waste management, pollution prevention, food systems, social indicators and transportation.
