During October The NT in Wales completed the External Accreditation audit process of our Environmental Management System.
The Green Dragon Environmental Standard has been developed by Groundwork in partnership with the Welsh Government. The Standard offers a stepped approach to continual environmental management and improvement allowing organisations to progress at a sensible pace to suit their business.
The whole process is around understanding your impacts and risks; planning to do something about these; then actually doing something.
Of course it is not as simple in practice when you are the NT – farms/swimming pools/railways/ and the usual mansion properties. The achievement of Level 4 accreditation is testament to the continued committment of all-Wales staff and volunteers, and a validation of us “doing what we say on the tin”.
