Benefits to Gaining the Award

By choosing to be independently assessed, your organisation will demonstrate a commitment to helping the environment. You will demonstrate to your staff and customers that the organisation plans and implements both energy conservation and waste management actions that are good for the Island, good for the organisation and good for the environment.

Care for the environment often forms part of an organisation’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Most organisations now recognise that their stakeholders expect to see evidence that the organisation is taking a responsible approach to environmental matters. As well as the feel-good factor of doing right by the environment, by continuing to monitor and implement actions, organisations can significantly reduce their energy usage and waste disposals costs.
