key pillars
Key Pillars
  • Production processes: Conserving raw materials and energyEliminating toxic raw materialsReducing emissions and wastes
  • Services:Improved environmental performance by incorporating environmental concerns into the provision of services. Sectors include… financial, transport, retail, education, healthcare etc.
key pillars1
Key Pillars
  • Products:Reducing negative impacts along product life cycle.From raw material extraction  disposal.
  • Eco-Design:Developing new products with reduced environmental impact on a life cycle basis. Also: Improved recyclability, ease of repair and re-use, and improved durability.

  • Consider impact: from design, to process, to end-product, to packaging & transport
  • Change of practice rather than a capital fix
  • Involvement of staff from senior management to operators
  • Strong project co-ordinator
  • Clear objectives, targets and deliverables
