ARENA Network has conducted the annual Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey since 1998. This is widely recognised as the principal measure of environmental engagement in Northern Ireland and examines the leading 200 companies, 26 local authorities, five Health Trusts and the education sector.
The Survey aims to ensure environmental issues are on the Board agenda of the largest organisations in Northern Ireland and measures the extent to which these organisations are managing environmental issues. Moreover, the Survey is intended to persuade organisations of all sizes of the importance of environmental management.
Participants are invited to complete a self-assessment questionnaire, largely based on the Index of Corporate Environmental Engagement developed by Business in the Environment (ARENA’s counterpart in England). Verification visits to a sample of participants and an independent review of the Survey is undertaken by Acona Ltd.
