A2.2.6 Environmental Benefits


Through managing the environmental performance of your organisation, of course the environment itself will benefit.

For example, by controlling your activities in an environmentally responsible way, you will help to reduce the impact upon the natural cycles. If you purchase paper that is made from trees sourced from sustainable sources, you will reduce deforestation and ensure that new trees are planted to replace old, ensuring those trees are there to photosynthesise, contributing to both the oxygen cycle and the carbon cycle though photosynthesis and also the water cycle, through not adding to deforestation.

Through reducing your use of raw materials and reducing your waste generated, you will release pressure on the environment caused by the ever diminishing landfill space.
