Event description

Description

Giraffe Innovation has the pleasure of inviting your company to one of 5 STEM workshops which running from now until February 2019.

Companies of all sizes are increasingly required to demonstrate their environmental credentials through a formal management system. It can help you grow your business, build a brand and retain and access new customers through green procurement and a better understanding of environmental issues. The importance of an environmental management system (EMS) is an important marketing tool, as well as a source of environmental improvements and cost savings. Moreover, the absence of an environmental policy and management system could prevent your company from supplying current and prospective key customers.


This interactive and engaging workshop session will highlight the key steps your business can take within a commercial context.

The Steps To Environmental Management (STEM) scheme is designed for businesses that want to demonstrate they are working to improve their environmental performance and it is part of the Low Carbon Across the South East (LoCASE) project.

STEM starts by identifying how your business is interacting with the environment and systematically continues through to identifying the changes that will reduce its negative impact and improve competitiveness.

Employing STEM shows your customers that you are serious about producing less carbon and using less water; it recognises your efforts and gives credit for the initiatives you have taken.

We strongly recommend the scheme to businesses seeking to reduce their operating costs and stand out from the crowd as an environmentally sustainable organisation.

We will be running three levels of STEM workshops, blue, silver and gold. The three workshops will take you from an introduction to the environmental management system (EMS) right up to full implementation.

Even with no prior experience, tools and information are provided to allow you to build an environmental management system from scratch.

The silver workshop follows on from the blue workshops and covers the following:

  • Compliance Obligations - Tracking your compliance obligations will lead you on the right steps to ensuring you stay inside the law and avoid penalties.
  • Setting your environmtal objectives and targets.
  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Measuring Performance
  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Communication & Training

What you will learn

• An understanding of the environmental issues relevant to the core business and wider issues such as risk, legal compliance and stakeholder values;

• Scope and measure their environmental impact and performance;

• Practical steps to create and implement an environmental policy and environmental management system;

• How to use environmental credentials and policies to create additional business opportunities in existing and new markets.
