Environmental Responsibility 

This page will signpost you to resources that your organisation can use to monitor and reduce its environmental impact. 

You may find our blog on CCVS signing the Cambridge Carbon Footprint Charter and the changes we’ve made as an organisation a helpful starting point. 

These questions could help you think about possible next steps, or areas that your organisation might focus on to reduce its carbon footprint 

Environmental Policy & Action Plan 

Environmental Policies act as a commitment by an organisation to address the impact its work has on the environment.  

Environment Action Plans are working documents that set out exactly how your organisation will develop a good understanding of its impact and how it will take action to make positive change, within given time frames. 

You can download or read CCVS’s Environmental Policy and Action Plan. These documents can be amended to suit the work of your organisation.
