A Greener Tomorrow
What we do now, we hope others will do
in the future
Our promotion of sustainable business practices isn't all about the
greater glory of EAE and blowing our own trumpet.
We genuinely hope that other businesses will follow our example and
also try to operate in ways that minimise their impact on the environment.
We don't have all the answers and we are only part of the way along
our journey to operating in a completely sustainable manner.
However, we have received a lot of help, advice and support from others
as we have sought to become more sustainable. We are keen to share
our experiences with others who maybe want to be "greener"
but are unsure of how to go about it and what impact it will have
on their business.
We regularly host visits to our premises by business organisations,
school parties and other interested groups who want to see our sustainable
practices in operation. We are members of a number of environmental
business networks like the Prince's May Day Network and the Business

This case study report is one output from a research project, commissioned
jointly by the Scottish Government, Defra and the 2020 Climate Group,
which investigates what works in delivering low-carbon
behavioural initiatives in the workplace. The report highlights the
actions taken by 10 innovative employers including EAE.
