Promoting Responsibility and Integrity in the Maintenance of our Environment
PRIME Principles for environmentally-sustainable and responsible business.

PRINCIPLE #1

BEING ENVIRONMENTALLY BETTER

Responsible Consumption

Only buying what your organisation actually needs; opting for reduced packaging and eliminating wastage.

Waste Reduction / Recycling

Reducing waste sent to landfill, reusing and recycling materials and packaging wherever possible.

PRINCIPLE #2

EMBRACING SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION

Sustainable Sourcing

Choosing what you buy, and where you buy it from; preferring sustainable alternatives (like renewable energy) and locally-sourced produce.

Welcoming Change

Recognising that the 'old ways' aren't always the best and striving to embrace modern and efficient ways and means.

PRINCIPLE #3

SPREADING THE WORD

Promoting Change

Both inside your organisation, and beyond. Recognising that, together, we can all achieve so much more.

Working Together

Creating a culture of sustainable practice within your organisation and sharing best practices and collaborating outside of it.

PRINCIPLE #4

DELIVERING IMPACT

Leading by Example

By this, we mean 'walking the walk'. Looking beyond your organisation, leading from the front and celebrating others' successes.

Striving for More

Looking beyond your immediate intents and results to effect a sustainable and longer-term impact through your organisation.

PRINCIPLE #5

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Championing & Valuing Diversity

Building a culture of equal treatment, diverse and varied perspectives and, most importantly, equal opportunity for all within your organisation and your sector.

Supporting Charities & Local Communities

Delivering a local impact through your organisation's initiatives, donations and operations.

Acting Ethically and with Integrity

Competing fairly, marketing honestly and paying your supply chain promptly. We can all make a bigger difference from a level playing field.

PRINCIPLE #6

BEING ACCOUNTABLE

Transparency & Publishing Performance

Engaging with the PRIME Principles and sharing the details of your PRIME journey to help inspire others and demonstrate your ongoing commitment.

Learning & Asking for Help

The PRIME Principles don't provide a 'set-and-forget' solution for sustainable and responsible business. Learn from your mistakes, and don't be too proud to ask for help.
