Green Business Coaching
Many companies today are keen to deepen sustainability in their culture and operations, but lack the skills and capacity to do so. Our coaching process is based on our ‘Greening your Business’ e-learning programme which was published by Business Day, sponsored by Nedbank and drew over 2000 participants across South Africa.
Six steps to the ‘Greening your Business’ process:
- Background to sustainability in business
- Building company buy-in
- Measuring the eco-footprint: energy, water, waste
- Empowering your green team
- Setting targets and implementing
- Reporting and communications for ROI
Once your company is well on its way to sustainability, marketing and communications content about your journey and milestones bring integrity and authenticity. These are key assets to convincing media messaging and enhanced reputation.
