Many investors and other stakeholders are questioning organisations engagement with Environmental, Social and Governance factors. Those organisations that consider ESG in their operations and investment decisions are more likely to win support from employees, customers, and investors than those organisations that ignore ESG.
ESG is a wide area covering many aspects of an organisation from climate change to diversity inclusion. Environmental Efficiency is focused on the E in ESG and can help organisations implement best practice is the areas of carbon footprint reduction , minimisation of water resources, reducing air pollution , and greenhouse gas emission reduction. A good start on the ESG journey can be made by considering the environment first as the impacts are often felt quickly and can be readily measured. In many cases, significant cost savings can be made thus helping finance further ESG initiatives.
The use of buildings certified to the BREEAM, LEED, and WELL certifications is a sign of a strong commitment to ESG principles. Environmental Efficiency can advise and assist on the certification of buildings to these standards.
