Work
 

Whatever we do, the things we make and the things we eat, all affect the environment. When we help to make these things we all change nature by changing parts of the world.

Whether in a factory, farm, office, or shop, we alter parts of the environment every day. They contribute to improving the quality of many of our lives in one way or another.

When we change the environment, we create wealth. On the other hand there may be costs to the environment, which we need to take account of.

Most accounting systems do NOT take account of the costs to the environment. The environment is taken for granted.

The Environmental Practioner Programme does not take the environment for granted, but instead it looks to find ways to reduce our impacts, or make them positive.
