What is an Environmental Policy and Action Plan?

An Environmental Policy is a broad statement of an organisation’s overall environmental ambitions, which provides a framework for its Environmental Action Plan and good environmental practice on a day-to-day basis.

An environmental action plan is a more detailed and specific document, which should follow on from your Environmental Policy, and define specific targets, actions, responsibilities and deadlines for achieving environmental improvement and reducing environmental impacts.

We have created guidelines if you need support in creating/developing your Environmental Policy and Action Plan.
