Defra hires WYG to present business case for EMS...
White Young Green (WYG) has been chosen by the UK environment ministry, Defra, to collect data on the financial and environmental benefits accrued by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) following formal adoption of environmental management systems (EMSs). WYG will also seek to identify drivers for EMS take-up by SMEs. The aim of the project is to provide greater evidence about the business care for EMS use by smaller organisations, which can then be employed by public sector bodies to encourage a larger number of SMEs to consider adopting an accredited EMS. All SMEs that participate in the research will receive a free site visit by a WYG consultant “who will draw up an accurate picture of the benefits of their EMS. The firms will be able use this information in their marketing and communications,” explains WYG's sustainability director Steve Piltz.
