New guidance announced on sustainable workplaces

Over the past few years sustainability has become a buzzword, seemingly dropped into articles whenever the subject of global warming, climate change, pollution or recycling comes up.

But the question remains - what are we meant to be sustaining, and why should it be sustained?


To help answer this, Workplace Law has launched Sustainable Workplaces 2008: Special Report, which covers the whole spectrum of sustainability, from Corporate Social Responsibility to waste management, to give you all the information you need on this increasingly popular topic in one place.

Sustainable practices can improve your business’ reputation and save you money, as highlighted by the ‘real world’ case studies within this report on companies such as Tesco, KPMG, Wal-Mart and Marks & Spencers. This report explains the business case for sustainability alongside the environmental and social cases.

Written by a variety of big names in the sustainability business (Envirowise and Bureau Veritas to name but two), Sustainable Workplaces 2008: Special Report will help you to get to grips with the often-confusing subject of sustainability and help you to apply the concept in your workplace. 

The report answers key questions such as:

  • Why do I need to concern myself with sustainability?
  • What can I do to make sure my business is sustainable?
  • Why is sustainability to do with more than just the environment?
  • How can sustainable practices save my business time and money?

The report includes an A-Z guide to sustainability-related legislation, supported by further chapters explaining how your business should comply with the law. Furthermore, the report explains how implementing sustainable practices will help your business use fewer resources, meaning lower bills, and profit from the environmental benefits of sustainability.
