Managing the environmental impact of your business has never been more important. Important in terms of the cost of running your organisation, and important in terms of how it is perceived by your customer and your staff. This is true no matter the sector you operate in, or the size or type of your organisation. Failure to embrace this will have a significant impact on your longevity and your growth.
The good news is that organisations that adopt this strategy reap enormous benefits.
GEP are proud to be supporting this event for the second year. This year we have decided to run two workshop seminars, both to be presented by Peter Schofield, our lead Environmental Consultant.
A certified Environmental Management System (EMS) can deliver great commercial value and incorporating the new requirements of the ISO 14001:2015 need not be difficult or expensive. Peter is experienced in the design and implementation of Environmental Management Systems and has supported a number of clients across a variety of sectors to transition to ISO 14001:2015, and will be explaining exactly what your organisation needs to do to meet the requirements of and become certified to the new EMS Standard.
Taking elements from the training courses GEP provide to clients covering, Carbon, GHG’s, Foot Printing, Accounting and Management, Peter will explain how to get to grips with your carbon intensity and the costs involved. With examples taken from our extensive experience of successful energy efficiency projects, we will provide guidance on assessing your premises and processes to identify cost effective opportunities to reduce carbon emissions. Effective management of these opportunities will lead to tangible year-on-year cost reductions and other commercial benefits such as improved reputation or enhanced risk mitigation.
The event is at the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton on the 12th October 2017. Doors open at 9:30am and the conference sessions start at 10:00am. Entry is free, but please visit The Big Green Event website to register for your ticket and to sign up for the workshops.
We’ll be in touch as soon as possible. If you’d rather call us in the meantime, please feel free to give us a call on 03301 200 151.
