Saving waste usually saves money which is why environmental sustainability is quite compatible with financial sustainability. Doing the right thing can actually save money.
As former accountants we’re good at auditing systems and asking awkward questions to see where that waste arises. Some of my FC roles included responsibility for the Quality and Environment departments and, in one, a couple of my accountants were trained up as environmental auditors.
While running my practice one of our team was our Environmental Champion and trained to help clients. Sadly we were before our time but I think the business climate is now changing as Climate Change awareness increases and moves higher up the board’s agenda
Is this something that you could add to your services? Or partner with an environmental consultant who already offers this service?
