Intertek Alchemy has introduced a Environmental Responsibility training program. As explained by the company, the turnkey solution helps manufacturers build a cohesive culture designed to protect the environment, meet regulatory requirements, and increase production efficiency and profit.
Expectations for manufacturing companies to be environmentally sustainable are increasing. According to the 2017 Nielsen Global Sustainability Survey, 68% of Americans said it is important that companies implement programs to improve the environment. In addition, environmental sustainability programs can have a significant impact on the bottom line. A recent study by Environment + Energy Leader found that companies who implemented environmental sustainability programs reported $800 million in manufacturing cost savings. Additional earnings in risk reduction, productivity gains, and enhanced growth opportunities added billions in value.
Intertek Alchemy’s Environmental Responsibility training program utilizes the company’s award-winning engagement techniques to change behaviors and build a culture of responsibility, the company said, explaining that the multi-faceted program includes group training for frontline workers, deeper eLearning for facilitators, interactive role plays with objection busters, reinforcement materials, and recognition awards to reward engagement; and results are easy to track with the program’s unique ROI calculators.
“Improving environmental responsibility is one of the most important things manufacturers can do today to increase goodwill among employees, customers, and the community while reducing waste and costs at the same time,” said Intertek Alchemy President Mike Grigsby. “We’re extremely proud to offer this industry-leading resource to equip manufacturing leaders and frontline workers with the tools they need to make a difference in the environmental sustainability movement.” Additionally, building buy-in ensures employees do the right thing every time. With this program, companies can optimize the effectiveness of their most impactful element of efficiency and sustainability efforts — frontline workers.
Intertek Alchemy’s Environmental Responsibility program is out-of-the-box ready and is easy to customize, the company said, adding, it includes tools to share the story of environmental initiatives with customers and the community with provided social media and communication templates.
The 12 key topics covered in the training program are Environmental Responsibility: Introduction, Environmental Management System: Overview, Stormwater Runoff, Spill Prevention, Hazardous Waste Awareness, Pollution: Air, Water, Noise, Water Conservation, Energy Conservation, Recycling Basics, Waste Reduction, Process Waste Prevention, Everyday Sustainability.
