Welcome to the 2015 Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey

The results of the 16th NI Environmental Benchmarking Survey can be found here.

The ARENA Network Survey benchmarks organisations against both their sector peers and the leading Northern Ireland organisations, on the basis of their environmental management and performance in key areas.

The Survey is a voluntary exercise which helps organisations identify environmental impacts, measure progress, drive improvement and raise awareness of the environment as an important, strategic and competitive issue at board level.

A business led initiative, the Survey is recognised as the principal environmental benchmarking exercise in Northern Ireland, encouraging environmental competitiveness among those organisations invited to take part.

The Survey is aimed at all companies small and large regardless of whether or not they have a certified Environmental Management System (EMS). We recognise that companies can have effective policies and procedures in place without having a certified EMS.
