The potential is enormous.
Candidates need support from their colleagues, management and external providers in order to demonstrate the required competencies. With support, employees were able to make a significant contribution to reducing impacts upon the environment caused by their work activities. Most candidates also demonstrated savings to “the bottom line”.
The pilot demonstrated the potential for employees working under supervision to make suggestions for improvements to work activities and work practices. This was achieved when the role of work activities and practices in contributing to environmental impacts was made clear. Most workplaces seem to have a vast potential to improve energy
efficiency, waste disposal, water conservation and resource usage practices.
