Industry and the environment survey
DECC’s benchmark Industry and the environment study investigated the adoption of environmental management by NSW industry to support the process of making improvements in environmental performance.
The findings of this study show that, although there is a high level of awareness of the need for environmental management throughout industry and in some sectors significant changes have occurred, overall, the general level of adoption is at an early stage.
As the first major study on this topic it provides essential information for planning, implementing and evaluating environmental programs for industry.
