A brief introduction to Engauge

Engauge is a unique concept created to support those who wish to develop and maintain environmental, social and economic stability in:

Engauge is a worthwile project that provides:

  • Specifically designed sustainability self-assessment tools for schools, businesses and communities
  • Unique assessments produced with advice from specialists
  • A self-help improvement support service
  • Links to a range of sustainability specialists
  • Practical guidance and case studies to demonstrate good practice
  • A direct contact point for making sustainability links through this new website

Why use Engauge?

(Based on a recent academic report on Engauge)

It is impossible to compare the Engauge project with programmes such as the international Eco-Schools programme. Engauge is a very local project which provides an alternative view to Eco-Schools but aims to deliver to a wider group of organisations that are looking for assistance with their sustainability plans.

Engauge’s online self evaluation tool coupled with the expertise provided by local specialists provides organisations with an invaluable selection of information which will enable them to proceed with improving their particular organisation’s buildings , business plans and community based initiatives.

Engauge self-evaluation procedure enables organisations to assess their financial and business development in relation to other key facets of sustainability.

Engauge overrides the fragmented approach to sustainability and when contrasted with other sustainable schools projects that have been used by local authorities. Many do not explore a selection of sustainability areas but instead focus on one at a time – again providing an arguably fragmented approach to sustainability.
