The Bigger Picture
Amida and our employees individually fit into the global network of human activity impacting upon the earth and upon each other.
The Brundtland definition of sustainable development is ‘development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’.
There are many issues facing both people and planet today, including population growth leading to intensive resource use, food scarcity and biodiversity loss, anthropogenically induced climate change, peak oil and social injustice. To put it plainly, Amida would like to be part of the solution to these issues.
In our work and throughout the business, Amida takes a holistic approach to sustainability, actively engaging with the interrelated issues of economy, society, environment and corporate governance. It is not an end-point to be reached, but is an ongoing process of continual amelioration. Rather than dichotomous or mutually exclusive, sustainable and unsustainable practices can be viewed as at two ends of the same continuum and through business innovation and change management, Amida are committed to sliding along that scale to be the most sustainable that we can be. Being a business that facilitates talent into professional areas related to sustainable development, we have been driving and developing our own sustainability programmes from day one.
We are striving towards a situation where we can honestly say that we are becoming the most sustainable we can be on all scales: individually, collectively, thinking about our communities, nationally and internationally.
Our vision for the future is to be an exemplar business for good sustainable practice.
Amida will not only act in accordance with UK and EU Environmental legislation in the pursuit of its business goals, but will go beyond compliance to ensure that Amida makes a positive impact to society and the environment.
