There is no question that sustainability is gaining momentum in the Voluntary & Community Sector (VCS). Sustainability is about finding ways for your charity or community group to operate that does not harm the environment. It’s also about being mindful of how your actions affect the local area and communities in Medway, and ensuring resources aren’t wasted or destroyed and that they are used in the most effective ways.
There are many ways in which you can get involved and MVA are able to provide a helping hand. Remember every journey begins with small steps and you don’t have to start with something big! Starting small and building your way up can often help to embed any changes you want to make more firmly.
With this in mind, MVA have created a new space on their website full of resources on how VCS organisations can ‘Go Greener’ including a free downloadable ‘Go Greener’ guide which has lots of quick and easy ideas to help promote environmental sustainability.
If you’re serious about ensuring your organisation is committed to the environment, a good place to start is by developing an environmental policy and upload it to your website so that it is a public commitment. For inspiration, and what to include, you can take a look at MVA’s environmental policy by clicking HERE
