Embed Sustainable Practices in Service Operations - Case Study 1

  1. The strategies for creating a more natural environment within the service are as follows:

(i) The institution should acquire an environmental management approach which should be professional and systematic to reduce the uses of sources and unfavourable impact of different institutional operation and should promote institutional sustainability.

(ii) A master plan should be prepared by the institution to create more natural environment. Moreover, it can employ Green campus initiative too.

(iii) The institution should adopt a compatible work pattern that would be with safe atmosphere, ecological balance and biodiversity,

(iv) The institution needs to adopt multidisciplinary approach to cover several attributes like; saving of energy, better utilization of materials, waste management etc.

(v) In order to make the service more natural, the institution should adopt source building materials and finishes.

  1. Explain how each of your strategies will contribute to the sustainability of the centre. Discuss how you have incorporated nature, waste, energy and toxins in your strategies.

The above mentioned strategies will be highly effective in creating sustainability of the centre. Acquiring an environmental management that is systematic and professional will help in decreasing the uses of artificial substances. Creating a master plan on environmental plan will be helpful for the service to follow strategic steps to make the service area more natural. Adopting a work pattern compatible with safe environment will ensure reduction in environment effecting resources. Adopting energy saving methods of working and green building materials and finishing would help making the environment more nature-friendly.

  1. Explain how you would develop strategies to address these areas of change in consultation with children.

Strategies to create more natural environment inside the service area should be child-centered. While making strategies, it should be kept in mind that the strategies will put a positive impact on children associated with the service.

  1. Outline how you would implement your strategies and evaluate the effectiveness of these

In order to implement the strategies to create a natural environment in the service, the institution can chose to source natural resources. For an instance, at the place of artificial grass, the institution can choose actual plants and climbers to decorate the service area. Since there are many decorative plants available in the market which can grow indoor, there is no need to use artificial ones. The effectiveness of the strategies can be evaluated by observing the children’s behaviour within the service area.

The average surface heat has increased globally by 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit since 1906 and the impact of rising temperature has resulted in global warming. The increased temperature is melting glaciers and sea ice setting animals on the move. The change in climate that encompasses extreme weather events, rising seas, shifting wildlife population and habitats, is affecting our planet’s weather and climate system. All of these changes are occurring due to adding heat-trapping green house gases to the atmosphere. Due to global warming, climate change, ozone layer effects and greenhouse effect the ice is getting melted throughout the world which consist glaciers of mountain, west Antarctica’s ice sheets, Greenland. Increasing temperature is affecting wildlife and their habitats. Many species are on move due to the temperature rise. If the temperature continues to rise, the sea level will expectedly rise between 10to 32 inches by the end of the century, storms and hurricanes will me stronger, floods and drought will be very frequent, there will be lack of fresh water, diseases like malaria will be wide spread and our ecosystem will continue to change.

To control the temperature rise in the atmosphere, families can plant more and more trees and reduce the creation of green house gases such as Methane Carbon dioxide, and Nitrous Oxide. Moreover, they can also become efficient with cooling and heating of their residential buildings. Agriculture practices must use less chemical fertilizers and encourage organic farming. Some barriers in adopting sustainable changes are lack of understanding, lack of commitment, lack of trust, reluctant to sharing information etc. Families can be motivated for adopting sustainable changes by creative approaches like writing, painting, music, drama and textile arts etc.
