Hello everyone, this is my first time using the forum and would be really grateful for any inputs
ISO14001 was pushed through really quickly where I work and certification achieved, however, I am now finding myself going back through all the documentation to get it up to standard.
Looking at the Aspect Register, it is not clearly stated whether aspects
are direct or indirect and I want to put this right. We are a small office based organisation over 8 locations, with around 300 people so aspects
are limited to things such as energy usage / natural resource usage / travel etc.
I understand that direct aspects
are ones that you have control over and indirect are ones that you can influence
e.g. natural resource usage is direct as we have control over how much paper etc that we use.
When I apply this to a key aspect of ours which concerns energy used by delegates attending events (their travel, venue energy etc) it seems to be a bit grey as we can influence
delegates to use our carshare scheme and assess the venues we use for energy efficiency but ultimately we control the amount of events we put on... should I just state that it is both direct and indirect?
