Internal issues are about events or products and services that may affect an organization’s environmental performance. For example, a transport company with a very old and inefficient truck fleet.

External issues are about legal, economic, social, or political issues. For example, government may impose more demanding limits to emissions or customers may decide to reward companies with better environmental performance.

As examples of measurable environmental targets, we may have:

  • Reducing waste sent to landfills in %
  • Reduce hazardous waste production in %
  • Increasing waste recycling in %
  • Reduce water consumption per unit produced
  • Reduce CO2 emissions from transport used per unit produced 

You just have to add a specific target, time frame and responsible.

As examples of risks we may have:

  • A local government help fund to support truck fleet renovation.
