Green code launched by ACBE
Company directors are to be sent a checklist to help them assess their company's attitude to sustainability.
Issued by the Advisory Committee on Business and the Environment, the guidance will allow companies to review their levels of sustainability and create action plans to deal with failing areas.
Aimed at companies with more than 250 employees, the report was produced by a committee chaired by KPMG’s senior London partner Gerry Acher.
As well as highlighting environmental and social responsibility issues, ACBE claimed that companies who followed the guidance would achieve significant cost savings and increase their competitive advantage.
The report, entitled Value, Growth, Success – how sustainable is your business?, asks a number of key questions about a company?s attitude to sustainable development, ranking the answers by degree of confidence or concern.ACBE is an independent advisory committee whose members are appointed by the deputy prime minister and Trade & Industry Secretary.Links
