The compliance schemes Novo Verde and ERP Portugal, have launched a communication program to help the companies to improve and communicate their sustainable practices.
“Sustainable Partner” has two main objectives : To support and inspire companies to develop initiatives focused on sustainability, while disseminating environmental best practices at the corporate level.
The Sustainable Partner project is based on a series of exclusive and customized tools, including explanatory videos, information documents and graphic tools that Novo Verde and ERP Portugal member companies can use to understand how to implement new actions internally, to explain practices to employees and to communicate to customers and consumers the efforts made to reduce environmental impacts in an integrated way.
Ricardo Neto, President of Novo Verde and ERP Portugal, added that it is a project developed to provide simple support to the companies with which we work, and to spread best environmental practices throughout the corporate structure. Partners and clients include companies that have very mature sustainability programs and initiatives that deserve to be (re)recognized by all their stakeholders. Other companies can use the knowledge we impart to implement new measures that are now increasingly critical to corporate sustainability, talent retention and reputation. At the end of the day, the winner is always the planet.”
The tools are divided into packaging waste, managed by Novo Verde, and waste from electrical and electronic equipment, batteries and accumulators, for which ERP Portugal is responsible. Partner companies that wish to participate in this program can do so through the pages dedicated to the topic for each type of waste at parceirosustentavelnovoverde.pt and parceirosustentavelerp.pt. Ricardo Neto also points out that this is not only an important step to share the different environmental concerns, but also to strengthen the relationship of trust with customers and potential customers, going beyond the essentials: “We are forming sustainable partnerships”.
