Environmental Policy Example

An environmental policy is a document which sets out your environmental commitment for your company. Most companies nowadays need to have an environmental policy to demonstrate to customers what they are doing to avoid / mitigate their environmental impact. This is particularly true if a company works in the public sector or tenders for public sector work.

So how to get started wit developing an environmental policy?

There are a few ways that you could develop your environmental policy. The most obvious is to employ a consultant who can write your policy for you. This has its setbacks though as consultants are expensive and often over-complicate things.

Alternatively you could find free environmental policy examples and information on the internet. Unfortunately this information tends to be very generic, lack substance and often very wrong.

There are also a number of quality resources on the net that provide practical advice on going green. One particular site, the Sustainable Business Toolkit, provides an excellent guide to producing an environmental policy. I highly recommend checking it out if you are looking to produce a high quality environmental policy, fast!
