Online survey to assess sector's green progress

A survey to find out whether the voluntary sector has improved its record on green issues has been launched by the Government-backed environmental initiative Every Action Counts.

The organisation is sponsoring the web-based questionnaire, which will be set against a similar survey last year to measure progress in the sector.

The initial study of 442 organisations, carried out in March and April 2007, found that a quarter of respondents had green practices in place and almost 90 per cent wanted to make their offices greener.

Mark Walton, head of Every Action Counts, said the study had prompted further analysis of green practices in the voluntary and community sector.

"The initial survey sparked a reaction in many organisations, encouraging them to take positive action," he said.

Groundwork UK, an environmental regeneration charity and a partner of the programme, is administering the questionnaire. The study is being distributed to local voluntary and community sector organisations through their national umbrella organisations and can be found here.

The survey closes at the end of November and Every Action Counts will announce the results by the end of the year.
