Welcome to the 2018 Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey

The Survey benchmarks organisations against both their sector peers and leading Northern Ireland organisations, on the basis of their environmental management and performance in key areas.

The Survey is a voluntary exercise which helps organisations identify environmental impacts, measure progress, drive improvement and raise awareness of the environment as an important, strategic and competitive issue at board level.

A business-led initiative, the Survey is recognised as the principal environmental benchmarking exercise in Northern Ireland, encouraging environmental competitiveness among those taking part.

The Survey is aimed at all organisations small and large, regardless of whether or not they have a certified Environmental Management System (EMS). We recognise that organisations can have effective policies and procedures in place without having a certified EMS.
