What is the impact of this on natural resources? How much resilience is there in this picture?
What can we learn from QA?Running multiple systems isn’t good business.You can expect some resistance when you ask people to start documenting and proving things they have been doing for years without the need to prove anything to anyone.Being asked to do this without a clear reward or payback can lead to negativity, hostility, resentment. Casualties of increased pressure can be production capacity, the natural resources, people’s goodwill and self esteem. So – how do we not do this again and how do we encourage or at least reduce resistance to the uptake of environmental assurance / management systems?
