SSN Audit Online Event: Introduction to Environmental Audits
Sheffield Sustainability Network (SSN) exists to provide all organisations in Sheffield with the support they need to become sustainable through member events, knowledge and skill sharing. Sheffield Sustainability Network was founded by three local business owners who had begun meeting regularly to exchange ideas on more sustainable ways of working. Their need for more knowledge and support inspired the creation of SSN, a platform in which local businesses and non-profit organisations can support each other in their goal of becoming more sustainable.
Looking to start, or make progress, on the path of making your organisation more sustainable? One of the best ways to progress sustainability in your organisation is to conduct an audit to measure where you are right now. This event will help businesses understand the types of audit available to them, identify which might be the best one to go with, and how to access it.
This event is aimed at anyone considering an environmental audit, and is particularly aimed at everyone who wants to reduce their organisation’s impact on the environment but is unsure about how to start. It features speakers from Business Sheffield, Translational Energy Research Centre and SSN itself, who will each talk about the audits offered by their organisations, and how to access them.
By the end of the event you should have a good idea of which audit is best for you, and how to access it, and will be able to start on the path of making your organisation more sustainable and reducing your carbon footprint.
What is an environmental audit?
An environmental audit creates a clear picture of your organisation’s current situation regarding energy use, pollution, waste and recycling, transport etc. This allows you to assess your compliance to regulations and to develop policies and procedures for reducing your environmental impact.
