Are you ready to address the pressing environmental issues in your business but are you unsure where to begin and lack a plan?
I understand! I am Livvy Drake (Sustainable Sidekicks) and I have worked on environmental and climate emergency action plans for:
Events and festivals
Charities and non-profits
And even an all-women rowing team! (The Bristol Gulls)
To help you kickstart your impact reduction journey, I’m offering a template that my clients have used to implement powerful sustainability action.
The template is complete with lots of handy explanations so that you will:

I am asked this a lot when I start working on a sustainability policy and strategy with clients.
📈The exercise I carry out is a prioritisation exercise…
How important is the impact (Scale of 1-5) and how much control do you have? (Scale of 1-5).
This will give you an indication of your ‘low hanging fruit’ and the more challenging areas.
The benefit of this is that it will:
Allow you to get started with some easy-wins
Build confidence and momentum with your team
Provide content and comms for your stakeholders
The first action for almost all areas will be to gather data to understand the depth of the impact and identify if your interventions have made a difference.
And the last action will be monitoring and measuring your impacts - I have included columns for you to plan out our monitoring and measuring on the FREE action plan.
Many people get concerned about setting targets for their action plans. Given we are facing an ecological crisis I do recommend that the R in SMART targets is now RADICAL!
Equally, I also argue that with ambitious targets, teams and contractors will come up with innovative ways to meet the challenge.
And if you don’t meet them, you can understand and explain why, to stakeholders without it being deemed a failure.
Companies like Unilever are transparent about how close they came to their targets and why they didn’t meet them.
The key aspect for targets is putting in a process to gather data and monitoring. Without data, you will never know what you have achieved!
