What is an eco audit?
It is an opportunity to find out what your
organisation is already doing and how your performance can be
improved further. Eco-auditing is the process of assessing the
current environmental performance of an organisation. It's a free
service, it's ethical, it can help you reduce your energy bills and
reduce your carbon footprint! The offer is open to voluntary &
community sector organisations in London.

staff and trustees

- review of policies and how decisions are made
- a report and action plan
- follow-up visit after a year
- report on the changes and savings achieved.
What will CBT ask you to
- to participate fully in the process, and to involve all your
staff and board
- to consider how environmental behaviours relate to your core
objectives, and how you will embed these into policy and
- how you will help to spread any useful messages or changes
among your stakeholders.
