NetPositive (n) – an approach to sustainability which gives an equal weighting to positive and negative impacts. When all negative and positive impacts of an organisation are taken together the overall (net) result is positive.
Most sustainability actions have up to now been focused on the negatives – reducing waste,transport, carbon. But we believe there’s enormous value in also focusing on the positives. And that doing so will accelerate your sustainability journey.
The positive contribution of a college to a local community far outweighs any of its negative impacts. Its role in producing sustainability-savvy learners, achieving local and regional objectives and building sustainable communities is often only subconsciously recognised.
NetPositive is the vehicle for recognising what your contribution already is, building on that contribution and helping you communicate your achievements stakeholders, partners, learners and the local community.
