Climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing humanity today - it's perhaps the biggest challenge we've ever faced.
With more stories appearing daily about another climate disaster, it's important that your company is taking the necessary steps towards sustainability.
More information about companies are available these days and consumers are becoming ever aware of who they're buying from, with an increasing number stating they prefer to purchase from businesses with green credentials.
Interestingly, people with the job occupation of 'manager' are the most likely people in Europe to take personal action to reduce their carbon footprint so there's hope that people at the right seniority level will be able to have an influence on businesses.
If you're thinking about taking action, keep in mind the following tips:
- Engage employees in conversation about what they can do to help. Sometimes it can be as simple as advising them to use a reusable coffee cup for their coffee breaks.
- Switch to a green energy supplier
- Take steps to becoming paperless
- Create a tree planting initiative in conjunction with the number of sales you make
