Practices are what you do at work to reduce the
impacts on the environment. You may have all sorts of thoughts,
ideas and suggestions about what to do to improve work impacts
on the environment.
It is only when you DO something that you can say you carry
out environmental practices. We all need to change
the way we do things if we are to reduce environmental impacts.
environmental practices may be simple - like turning off the
light switch, or more complex tasks such as mapping resource
flow or helping set realistic targets for reducing waste.
Environmental Practitioner can be expected to carry out complex
tasks that require freedom of movement at work.
Activity 3.1 to identify which principles
of environmental protection your organisation follows, and
which one you would like to promote most.
When you have identified the
environmental principles at work,
then you can work out what practices you can carry out to
further those principles.
Putting Principles into Practice helps you to decide what
sort of practice you could carry out and the environmental
principle it reflects.
