My advice is to build your environment policy from the bottom up. Instead of starting with vague concepts, it is more meaningful to start by asking what is possible and what that would cost. This prevents the inhibition of responsibility and creativity of your employees. This in turn leads to better and more cost-effective solutions, ensures that no promises are made that cannot be kept and it ensures that your environmental management plan is in alignment with the other business objectives.
Ultimately, it comes down to the delivery of your promises. You can’t do any more than that, and you won’t get away with any less.
A short conversation may be long enough for giving adequate advice on environmental policy statements, but usually it takes more time. A single conversation is sufficient to confirm that you have already taken the right steps or to conclude that my advice has no added value for your organization. Otherwise, a short conversation could be the basis for a follow-up meeting.
