What is Environmental and Sustainability Management?
The environment is a term used to describe our surroundings, in which people, animals or plants live and operate. Human activity has been having an impact on the environment for thousands of years in ways both positive and negative through agriculture, travel, urbanisation and commercial networks. Your organisation will have effects on the environment, through heating and air conditioning systems, electricity, non-renewable building resources and excessive amounts of waste all having a negative effect on the environment. These negative effects have resulted in pollution, global warming, climate change and over population.
Sustainability is the ability to exist and develop without depleting natural resources for the future. Now more than ever, businesses and people globally are trying to become more sustainable, adapt to climate change, achieve net zero and face other challenges to try and manage our environmental resources. Many businesses are now trying to become more sustainable to manage the problem with climate change being faced.

Environmental and sustainability management is now a business approach that many businesses are now taking to create long term value. Many businesses are now considering how their operations are influencing the environment due to the global environment crisis and are finding ways to make a more positive contribution. Businesses which do not integrate environmental and sustainability practices into their strategy are now becoming less successful and missing out on massive opportunities of being more environmentally friendly and sustainable.

What impact will it have?
Reducing waste and energy use:
Implementing environmental and sustainable practices into an organisation can help to reduce resources such as energy, materials, waste, water and carbon being used through your businesses supply chain. Developing the environmental and sustainability practices can help your business reduce your carbon footprint, become more energy efficient and save money. Businesses that implement these practices usually see a reduction in their energy and waste consumption costs straight away.
Enhanced brand reputation and loyalty:
Becoming more environmentally friendly can influence buying decisions of customers, people are now more than ever more aware of the impact their purchasing decisions have on the environment and society, meaning implementing sustainable practices within your organisations can impact your brands reputation and influence current and potential customers to become more loyal to your business over competitors who may not have these strategies implemented.
Business Continuity and Risk Management:
Environmental and sustainability management protects your business from the many risks which are faced today, while ensuring it can have a proactive response to any challenges it may face in the future. It is important for any business to have a long-term strategy for sustainability to ensure your business meets environmental compliance initiatives.
