St Mary’s Hospice provides care and comfort for patients living with any life-shortening illness or long term condition and their family. The hospice has a growing awareness of their need to have a positive impact, responding to growing environmental awareness among the general public.
Issues address in their Green Small Business action plan: energy & water use; food & drink purchasing; transportation; waste; company administration.
“The Green Small Business process has prompted us to think about areas we may have ignored. I think it is useful for getting us on to the right track to take our environmental footprint seriously. It will also enhance our reputation with those for whom green is important. I believe that increasingly the public will be attentive to those companies who don’t take a proactive green stance”
