Sustainability needs a strategy. To get the right team working on the same page we run workshops to connect different parts of your business and align with the company sustainability vision and goals.
Close Focus Director, Frank Given, is a certified trainer and has been facilitating workshops with senior leaders, managers and shop floor since 2010.
We act as your guide through the maze of jargon so the sustainability story you tell is consistent with your values and your achievements.
A good story will help keep you competitive, but a great story will keep you at the forefront of your industry.
Carbon Footprint Assessment and Reduction
You need a starting point, a baseline to improve from, something to balance against pure financial performance. Mapping your carbon footprint gives focus to your strategy and links directly to your business cost reduction needs.
Close Focus Director, Frank Given, is a trained ISO 14001:2015 management system auditor and has worked with many certification schemes, including EMAS, ISO 14001 and Acorn (BS 8555).
Business Cost Reduction
Efficiency savings in fuel, electricity, water and raw materials are key to reducing business overheads. By linking technical and people skills of efficiency activities to a sustainability project, we help staff prioritise gains for the company and sustain the savings long after the focus has moved on.
Techncial Compliance - Product Safety
If you are making products for the European market, then registration for product safety through REACH, CLP or CE Marking will be on your radar.
Close Focus Director, Frank Given, has been providing technical training and advice on CE Marking since 2008 and integrating REACH and CLP regulations since 2013.
