Astutis Awarded Sustainability Eco-Labels

August 2023


Astutis is delighted to have been awarded two eco-labels from ethy, which specialises in verified sustainability achievements. 

The eco-labels are;

  • Eco-label: Industry Champion 
  • Eco-label: Empowered Employees

Let's discuss the two awards and what they mean!

Eco-label: Industry Champion

Criteria
  • The brand engages with the industry to improve it and deliver social and/or environmental value through initiatives or projects. This can include actions such as: sharing best practices openly and freely with others in the same industry, lobbying for new policies or laws, and working to achieve wide-scale structural changes. Industry champions support the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda through capacity-building.
  • Projects must be irrespective of commercial gain and/or go beyond the typical activities or donations relating to the products or services they sell. Activities such as planting trees to offset produced emissions or donating to a charity are not applicable.
  • The initiative should either have a measurable medium- to long-term impact or be ongoing with set goals.
  • ‘Industry’ could be national, regional or local, depending on the organisation’s positioning and definition of the industry within their sustainability strategy.

Astutis is actively involved in the Diverse and Sustainability Initiative (DSI), which improves our industry and goes beyond our typical products, services and activities for direct commercial gains. Astutis are Industry Champions, supporting the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda through Capacity Development. Capacity-building activities are aimed at strengthening and maintaining the capabilities of states and societies to design and implement strategies that minimise the negative impacts of current social, economic, and environmental crises and emerging challenges. 

The award recognises our continuing work to reduce our organisational environmental impact by introducing effective initiatives into the business to make a noticeable difference. These initiatives have helped to entirely wipe out single-use plastics and dramatically reduce the amount of paper used. We also organise and participate in regular litter-picking events to ensure our local area remains tidy and safe. 

Eco-label: Empowered Employees

Criteria

  • Support employees to choose active and low-carbon travel.
  • Flexible work from home options for employees.
  • Implement and promotes a plant-based, healthy food policy.
  • Review estate landscapes to improve spaces for employees and clients.
  • Employees are trained about climate action and environmental policies.
  • Employees are empowered to reduce carbon and resource use.
  • Climate responsibility is written into employee job descriptions.
  • Employees are encouraged to bring ideas about sustainability to management.
  • Offers a cycle to work scheme for employees

In receiving the Empowered Employees eco-label, Astutis is recognised for taking progressive action to empower its employees to be happier, healthier, and live more sustainably. Astutis has implemented policies to enable employees to live and work more sustainably. These policies include:

  • Home working and flexible working policy
  • Cycle to Work Scheme
  • The creation of two internal environmental champions who push the organisation to adopt more stringent environmental schemes. 
  • Book club
  • Weekly litter-picking initiatives 

They symbolise our desire to practice what we preach and evidence our efforts to be the definitive sustainable health and safety training provider.

Upon receiving the award, Ruth Williams, Astutis' Head of Marketing commented;

"We are delighted our continued efforts for environmental positivity have been recognised and view this accomplishment, only, as added impetus to achieve a higher standard of sustainable working and a lower carbon footprint for future generations!"

  • "I enjoyed the course that i took with Astutis, IEMA Environmental Sustainability Skills for Managers. It really well put together, and ultimately I passed the test and gained the certificate, so the information imparted covered the syllabus well. Was a bit surprised to see that the test was Open Book after I'd clicked to 'start' - I'd been revising for a few weeks, if this had been communicated better it might have saved me a bit of anguish!"

  • "I felt a divine prompting to seek my Boss's recommendation when considering another learning partner, and she graciously suggested Astutis. Choosing Astutis turned out to be a decision without regrets. Even when I didn't pass the RA on my first attempt, the Director's response to my inquiries boosted my confidence to request a remark, which was facilitated at no extra cost thanks to the Director's advocacy. Astutis provided unwavering support throughout my journey, from inception to completion. I eagerly anticipate enrolling in additional courses and pursuing a diploma with them."

  • "Nebosh need to be consistent with the marking, I felt the marking can be somehow subjective. Different marker graded same script differently. I failed the first time because someone(marker) didn't understand the guideline and the second marker did mentioned something different. Good study material and content."
