Addressing current environmental problems is not about incremental change and 'being less bad'. It is about doing things differently. At Sustainable Change Cooperative our ambition is to enable organisations turn a desire to take meaningful action on environmental issues into real and effective change. This change has to come from within so our focus is on informing, facilitating and mentoring within organisations to develop skills, understanding and confidence of people so they can do things themselves.
With this approach, we can assist across many areas and topics: developing environmental goals and a vision of what you and your organisation want to achieve; implementing tools such as environmental management systems (e.g. ISO14001); understanding environmental impacts; making carbon reductions; effective evidence-based campaigns. The list goes on.
If you have an issue that you would like to discuss then please get in touch. We will spend time talking things through so that we really understand what you need, and help you develop your thinking, work out options for how we could help and explore if our approach is what you are looking for. We will always do our utmost to find a way to support you whatever the budget.
