Not For Profit Programs

We can support your organisation by developing a customised Environmental Sustainability Program that takes into account your organisation’s culture, priorities and resources.

This is done via in depth consultation with key staff members about your organisation’s motivation, barriers and environmental goals.

Our staff are far more informed about the environmental impacts at work and committed to sustaining our environmental goals: Nicole Gibbs, CEO, Norwood Association

Our Process

Our not for profit Sustainability Programs are developed with you through the following process. We will support you to design a program that reflects your organisation’s culture and current resources.

1. Environmental Assessment & Opportunities Report

Conduct on-site or remote assessment of your office space, resource utilisation and baseline environmental measures.
From our assessment we will compile a report of baseline environmental measures and further opportunities in the areas of:

    • Organisational culture and strategy
    • Energy conservation
    • Water consumption reduction
    • Waste reduction and recycling
    • Transport and travel
    • Procurement and supply chain sustainability
    • Toxins in the workplace

This includes support for decision makers to identify short and long-term environmental goals that are realistic and achievable.

2. Workshops & Education

Plan, deliver and evaluate workshops and education sessions for staff, environmental committees, executive teams and board members.

These sessions will prepare your participants to understand why your organisation is committing to improve its environmental sustainability and their role within this initiative.

    • Customised guides and checklists
