Participate in Sustainable Work Practices
In a typical scenario, a team member will be aware
of environmental resource use. Some of this is necessary but typically a large part of
environmental resource use may be unnecessary
waste and so should be eliminated or at least minimised.
The team member will observe resource use and ensure it is according to the organisations plans and will also
engage in continuous improvements for resource use.
Intermediate Level 4

Advanced Sustainabilty Unit for CSR Managers - Diploma Level
Develop Workplace Policy and Proceedures for Sustainability
Corporate and Social Responsibilty Reporting
This is the highest level sustainable energy unit
in the CM. In a typical scenario, there is a need to reduce waste in
the value chain.
Part of this is the cost of energy to the process. Some of this is necessary waste but typically a large
part of energy use in unnecessary
waste and so should be totally eliminated. In order to make
these savings, there is a need to analyse energy use and cost in all its forms and then develop and implement
plans for the more efficient use of energy.
This unit primarily requires the application of
communication and problem solving skills associated with collecting and analysing information. An ability to
analyse energy use of technology or processes will be applied. Initiative and enterprise, and planning and
organising are also required to develop plans for efficient energy use. This unit also requires aspects of
self management and learning to ensure feedback and new learning is integrated into the development of
