10 Reasons Your Company Needs an Environmental Consultant

Not to blow our own trumpets, but we know the immense value that Environmental Consultants can provide to businesses that are looking for additional support regarding compliance, legislation, EMS, best practice, sustainability guidance, and more.

 

Instead of simply giving ourselves a pat on the back for doing great work, we are instead going to explore ten reasons that we think your company can benefit from working with an Environmental Consultant (like us).

 

Reason one – Maximise your resources

‘Resources’ has so many meanings, but in this sense, we are talking about human resources and the physical assets owned by your business. Through effective environmental practices, your staff are able to go about their work in the most environmentally friendly way, fulfilling their tasks without taking risks. At the same time, these employees are using resources in the most efficient way, making sure that there is minimal wastage, effective usage, and a conscious application of tools and assets. Maximising your resources is just another way to maximise profits, which speaks to all business owners on some level.

 

Reason two – Work towards best practice

No two businesses are alike and there’s no such thing as perfect, so how can any business know what they should be aiming for or where they can learn the best practices from? Fortunately, that’s the job of an environmental consultant to solve, to unravel all of those complexities and put the business on the path towards best practice. Overnight changes do not result in overnight success, but rather they align businesses and guide them in the right direction. Without the help of an Environmental Consultant to put a clear strategy in place, the desired results may be much harder to get achieve.

 

Reason three – Use great ideas from competitors and leaders

When you work with an Environmental Consultant, you are working with their entire history, knowledge, and experience. This should never be overlooked, as they may have knowledge from working with competitors, similar businesses, or even businesses of a similar size and work ethic. An Environmental Consultant must weigh up many ideas and factors when helping give strategic clarity, and there may be ideas from their past that had never been considered at your company before.

 

Reason four – Compliance is essential for all businesses

It’s important to remember that ignorance is no defence when your business is found to be non-compliant. We believe that a rising tide lifts all boats, and what we mean by that is that it’s important to educate everyone in the organisation about environmental compliance and what could affect them. All businesses must be compliant, so why not make sure everyone is on board and aware?

 

Reason five – Your EMS is likely to evolve in a better way

You will likely already have an EMS in place, but if you’ve come to this article, you might be discontent with how it is going. We’d like to make the point that additional training and support from an Environmental Consultant can be hugely beneficial to your EMS. Industry-specific knowledge, requirements, processes, and training from an Imvelo consultant who really understands and can work with the challenges and operations of your business is going to do your EMS a world of good.

 

Reason six – Permits, accreditations, and licenses

We have various accreditations and licenses that make it easier to help our clients pursue accreditations, permits, and licenses of their own. This is a small point, but it’s one that offers huge time and financial savings.

 

Reason seven – We can deliver training too

We don’t just work on strategy, we believe in the value of education. Your environmental consultant is a multi-talented professional who can drive your business forward in a variety of ways. The training and courses they are able to deliver can bring about huge positive changes to your workforce.

 

Reason eight – We keep on top of everything for you

You’re busy. You have bigger priorities than Environmental management and compliance. You don’t have the time to track legislation changes and industry updates and keep on top of all of the things that you need to. Fortunately, you have us. We love doing this stuff!

 

Reason nine – Customers, competitors, and the community

Reputation is massive, so making a concerted effort to improve your environmental performance, and then getting the word out to customers, competitors, and the community about what you are doing is going to really boost your image. Why would you want to improve your image? It can make a massive difference in attracting talented employees to work for you, it can win you new customers, and it can put exciting contracts on the table.

 

Reason ten – We provide the additional knowledge that you need

Your business doesn’t know everything about environmental management, your environmental professionals don’t know everything about environmental management, and admittedly, nor do we. However, we know how to work together to fill in all the gaps, bring everyone up to speed, and make sure that the future of your company’s environmental management is absolutely bright. We are the glue.
