Book a one-to-one meeting

For many Green Champions we know that the prospect of recording and reporting your emissions can be quite daunting and it can make all the difference to get specialist advice and to talk over what you need to do in your organisation. You could be struggling to find your energy meter, be new to our online tools or keen to get other staff involved. Whatever the reason we are happy to meet with you at your office or venue.

Please email our Carbon Advisor  Fiona MacLennan to arrange a meeting.

Develop your Environmental Policy

Writing down your environmental policy will help you carry out your green actions. Your policy doesn’t need to be long and complicated. It should be an active document which makes it easy for members of staff to make more environmentally sustainable choices in your organisation. Most importantly, it should be simple, practical and have backing and approval from your management team.

Send us your draft policy and we can give you feedback to Fiona MacLennan

See our Guide to developing your environmental policy .
