​Setting actions and targets
Book a ticket on Eventbrite

Why a business should set environmental actions and targets​

Setting action plans helps businesses to:​

  • plan ahead
  • identify roles and responsibilities
  • set timescales
  • identify any financial implications
  • reflect on achievements​

Members and leaders of the eco active business network have signed up to improve the environmental performance of their businesses.  

We believe in step by step improvement, so we ask you to set and deliver at least 2 new actions per year. 

Identifying environmental actions or targets

Each year one environmental action or target​ must focus on reducing carbon emissions or energy use. The second action can be from another environmental area, for example:

  • waste
  • water
  • transport
  • biodiversity
  • procurement
  • community involvement
  • education and awareness or staff training

Environmental actions should be integrated within the business plan. This will make sure: 

  • everyone is aware of what you are doing
  • it becomes normal behaviour​
  • it is not seen as an added extra​​

The eco active business network are offered training and events to help identify and meet targets.

Eco active case studies

Biodiversity: Pollinator patch 

A local office has converted their outside area into an urban garden, with a pollinator patch and bug and bee hotels. This could be an action for any company with an outside space, or a company could sponsor a community pollinator patch.

Procurement: Sustainable purchasing

How renting equipment reduces waste and carbon emissions.

Reducing the risk of negative environmental impacts

Some business activities have a negative impact on the environment. You need to understand which business activities are high risk. You can manage risks better by adding environment impacts to risk assessments. 

​It's important that your staff know what the risks are and what they need to do to meet business requirements.
