  • Reputation Building and good PR – Including delivery of the participants’ environmental sustainability and/or CSR policies.
  • Encourages implementation of best practice – ranging from whole life costing, waste minimisation, resource efficiency, to reducing complaints and environmental incidents
  • Demonstrates a commitment to the sustainability agenda
