Why is Climate Change Important to Your Business?

All companies, however big or small, have an impact upon the environment. Whether it's the energy you are using, your resources, or simply your staff travelling to and from the office everyday. Factors to consider are:

  • Individuals and consumers are becoming increasingly conscious of their own carbon footprint impacts and that of the products and services they purchase
     
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an established term that can promote companies having a positive impact on society
     
  • Companies are going to have to clearly demonstrate what they are doing to reduce their carbon footprint and how it impacts their customers, employees and suppliers
     
  • Individuals are choosing products more wisely e.g. ethical environmental impact, fair-trade, organic reduce carbon miles
