Welcome to the Curated Treasury of good practice in ecologically sustainable project management.Here you will find an overview of various management, implementation and quality assurance activities, including organising promotional or training events, related to (not only) European funded projects. The aim is to make project managers more aware of the ecological footprint of projects and help them tackle it by suggesting concrete measures, methods or tools for reducing it and/ or compensating for it.
The Treasury is addressed above all to project managers working on European funded projects and includes a collection of good practice examples, detailing points and activities where a project could be made “greener”.
While there is no panacea to world’s environmental challenges, project managers can always consider the pros and cons and opt for greener alternatives. By specifying the pros and cons for each decision we don’t want to say that only this is a good decision and everything else is bad or this is right and this is wrong. We want to give all the necessary information to project managers to make conscious decisions and provoke their critical thinking also in respect of ecological sustainability. We also aim to help them set example to the different target groups they work with in projects on a daily basis. The aim is to take small steps and start with small things.
If you want to contribute with great ideas not mentioned here, please, get in touch with your closest partner and we’ll send you a form to fill in.
Before you browse our Treasury of good practice, perhaps you would like to use our Checklist for project management teams to reflect whether you have already thought of greener alternatives within the development and implementation of your project.
To browse the Treasury, just click on any of the Project phases and the related examples of good practice will appear. Bear in mind that some of them can relate to more than one project phase, so their categorisation is broad and not restrictive.
