“Joan has helped move our organization forward by providing expertise, respected opinions, and thoughtful recommendations that are valuable and attainable for our team.”

A sustainability policy demonstrates visible commitment of your organization to the laws, regulations, and other facets of environmental and social issues, such as air and water pollution, waste management, human wellbeing, and the protection of natural resources.

A sustainability policy forms the foundation of environmental decision-making made for your organization and can provide significant benefits to how your organization operates. Here are some benefits:

  • Provides the framework from which to operate
  • Shows leadership commitment to environmental sustainability
  • Keeps employees informed about their environmental roles and responsibilities
  • Improves cost control
  • Reduces incidents that result in liability
  • Conserves resources, raw materials and energy
  • Improves monitoring of environmental impacts
  • Improves the efficiency of processes
  • Improves relations with community and external stakeholders
  • Improves organizational image
  • Improves employee retention
