Sustainability Strategy Training

Sustainable development requires a holistic consideration of environmental, social and economic issues in the decision-making process and further activities.

What is a sustainable strategy?

A sustainability strategy outlines key targets, metrics, and actions that your organisation plan to undertake to improve their impact on the community and environment across a range of sustainability issues.

Taking a sustainable approach will encourage us to think more about the true value and costs of our activities and improve the impacts we might be having on the environment and society. By developing and delivering a sustainability strategy – a framework to structure your actions and commitments – that is relevant and proportional to your business, you are managing your impacts and demonstrating that you are serious about sustainability.

The Government’s sustainability strategies for the built environment outline clear targets for improvements and bodies such as BREEAM, CEEQUAL, and the Sustainable Facilities Management Index provide practical systems for measuring and reporting sustainability within projects. Aligning your strategy with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) is a good way to demonstrate your commitment towards global sustainability targets.
