Webinar: From Environmental Management to sustainability - Nov 2020


FREE event


Traditionally, environmental management for many organisations has tended to focus on operational performance issues such as pollution prevention and legal compliance, waste management and utility consumption. Whilst the introduction of the revised environmental management system standard ISO 14001 has encouraged a broader perspective, many organisations experience difficulties in trying to integrate environmental risk and opportunity with the business strategy and throughout the organisational value chain. 

The environmental and sustainability agenda is rapidly evolving, with issues such as climate change, biodiversity, plastic, packaging, procurement, supply chain management and life cycle thinking resulting in increased performance transparency. This presents both risk and opportunity for organisations and increases the need for internal departments to work collaboratively and strategically to manage performance.


The webinar will be of interest to environmental and sustainability practitioners, as well as middle and senior management as it will discuss how moving from environmental management to sustainability can support organisations in achieving their strategic business objectives.
