The British Safety Council has launched its new Five Star Environmental Audit at an Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment conference in the UK.

The audit will be available in the Middle East and is an independent evaluation of an organisation's environmental compliance and sustainability. It covers 94 separate issues including compliance, benchmarking, greenhouse gas reduction and biodiversity.

Environmental training manager Howard Dawes said: "The aim of the Five Star Environmental Audit is to strengthen the client's commercial and environmental sustainability. It identifies cost savings and provides the organisation with ways to help do its part to reduce climate change."

The audit involves an in-depth examination of a company's premises and activities and identifies areas that have a potential impact on the environment. A comprehensive report, which follows, includes an overall grading and recommends ways of improving environmental sustainability performance.

"A company can benefit by identifying cost savings and resource efficiencies, plus they can increase productivity and profitability as well as increasing the company's reputation at the same time," added a British Safety Council spokesman.
