BITCNI 2021 Environmental Survey 24 November 2021

The 2021 NI Environmental Benchmarking Survey results have been announced

The NI Environmental Benchmarking Survey is a free, annual, environmental management online self–disclosure exercise. Taking part enables an organisation to publicly demonstrate its commitment to being environmentally responsible and transparent and the process and results allow organisations to examine and reflect on their environmental performance, to compare themselves to others, and to drive improvements. 

In a significant year, when the UK hosted the UN Climate Change Conference COP26, we continue to see rapid change in advancing the environmental agenda. Organisations are making ambitious commitments that are unprecedented, and many are committing to net–zero emissions through their own operations and supply chains.

Interest in the Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey stays strong. Despite fears that the pandemic would take attention away from the environmental agenda, the opposite has been the case. In 2021, we recorded the highest participation level since 2013, and we have seen an increase in both the participation and average scores, highlighting businesses’ commitment to environmental improvement. This year, we are delighted to see participation in the Survey increase by 10% on 2020, from 103 to 113 companies, despite the challenging context in which we find ourselves. This was also the third year we offered the Small Business Survey.
