CSSC Green Mission Statement

At the start of Plastic Free July, a global movement to highlight and reduce the amount of plastic pollution, we are announcing our exciting new environmental initiative.

At the start of Plastic Free July, a global movement to highlight and reduce the amount of plastic pollution, we are announcing our exciting new environmental initiative.

CSSC green is our pledge to develop a programme of local and national actions, events and activities to demonstrate our commitment to becoming more sustainable and reducing our impact on the planet.

We will provide the tools and tips to help members lessen their footprint, and recognise those areas and regions that best demonstrate their commitment to hosting green events and activities with awards and rewards.

By December 2022, we will lay out our proposals to become a champion for sustainable public sector businesses. We invite you to join us on our ongoing journey to safeguard the planet for future generations.

Waste Hierarchy Triangle

"Many businesses are unaware of how significantly waste impacts on their bottom line. As the demand for materials grows worldwide, rising input costs, it makes sense for businesses to adopt the waste hierarchy."
