Environmental controls in virtual company

Hi, can you give me some advice please – our organisation is virtual, so everyone works from home. My question is in relation to the Guidelines – in our work we do not have medical waste, for example, so that guideline is not applicable. But where a guideline could be applied to individuals home premises, would this therefore become applicable? For example the waste management Guideline?

Answer:

The first question is what are significant aspects in your company? The significant aspects will dictate what controls will be applied. In case of your company, the only significant environmental aspect is electronic waste, but considering the nature of your business, application of conventional operational controls will be redundant considering the effort invested and the achieved results and environmental impact.

The best control in your case is to require from your employees to deploy the electronic waste to authorized local recycling organization and to present you with the receipt. You don't even have to document the guideline, you can sim ply prescribe this as a rule. Another way to implement the operational controls is to organize awareness raising sessions for your employees regarding environmental protection.
