We must work in partnership. Together we may look after the environment for the future, the future of our families, our work and ourselves.

Everything you do is bound to have some other interaction on another part of the environment. This means it is very difficult to say something is totally "good" or completely "bad" for the environment. Waste, energy , pollution and packaging are all connected. They may be governed by different regulations and standards, but the underlying principles of control are similar. By having a unifying process of environmental practice @ work they can be dealt with together.

Organisations could consider themselves like organisms. Each is distinct, but all have features that are common. By understanding the differences and the similarities, you can help determine the progress. Just as in nature, where organisms often work together as well as compete, so too can organisations.

Organisations need to grow in a way that is sustainable over a long period of time. To do this we need to find out more effective ways of doing things that avoid damage to the world. We need to organise to make sure we gain from development without destruction. Otherwise the benefits we get from nature will be lost forever.
