Management

Continuing Action

This section explains the main steps involved in setting up systems to manage your environmental impacts and some of the forms of recognition (standards, labels, reporting) available should your company wish to gain environmental credentials. Finally, initiatives such as corporate social responsibility, corporate governance and ethical investment are explained as these can overlap with environmental responsibility initiatives and they are being adopted by the screen production industry overseas and in New Zealand.

Environmental memberships

There are a number of organisations that support companies committed to improving their environmental and social performance. The New Zealand Business Council for Sustainable Development (NZBCSD) and the Sustainable Business Network (SBN) are two such organisations in New Zealand. These offer networking opportunities through seminars and conferences, practical tools and resources, advice and information. NZBCSD works on sustainability issues identified as important by member companies and these projects usually result in a handbook or guidelines for the business community. Membership of a sustainable business organisation enables companies to keep up to date with environmental and social issues and to share experience and best practice with other like-minded companies.
