Environmental management systems save money, says DEFRA
New DEFRA-funded research confirms that implementing environmental management systems (EMS) improve sales and reduce costs of 9 out of 10 SMEs.
According to the results of the DEFRA-funded study one third of businesses achieved new business sales of £14,961 per £m turnover in the year following certification while average costs fell by £4,830.
The payback period was only three-months for the cost savings and just one-month for the new business sales. The study calculated EMS Implementation and certification costs at £1,362 per £m turnover on average.
According to Envido’s senior energy and sustainability consultant Oliver Ingwall King, "legal compliance is the key driver in the manufacturing sector, whereas service companies such as hoteliers retailers and the professional services benefit most from increased sales and marketing opportunities."
Resource availability and expertise are the typical stumbling blocks to implementation but Envido can help. We can support EMS implementation, embedding user-friendly procedures and documentation and training staff to efficiently manage the system.
Envido provide support on environmental systems including ISO14001, ISO50001, the Energy Reduction Verification Kitemark and the Carbon Trust Standard to a wide variety of organisations including major FTSE brands and public sector organisations.
