iiE is a national environmental accreditation scheme. It is designed to help organisations save time and money, reduce their impact on the environment, and get promoted for their green credentials.
The scheme was launched because there was a need to work with businesses on various levels and many companies wanted a simpler and more flexible alternative to ISO14001. iiE helps businesses save money, implement good working practices, and reduce their impact on the environment. A real benefit of iiE is that the organisations we work with don’t need to have any prior experience or environmental expertise in-house.
The scheme is unique because organisations must achieve a minimum 2% improvement in resource efficiency over an agreed baseline figure, to secure green accreditation. Other criteria include having a recycling system in place, adopting a travel plan, calculating your organisational carbon footprint and setting targets for carbon reduction.
By putting together a credible Environmental Management System (EMS), the scheme allows organisations to:
- Save money and increase profits
- Raise their corporate profile
- Increase competitiveness and market share
- Involve staff in securing operational efficiencies
