Not only will we be helping the planet with reducing our waste, but we have also hired the lovely team at Interface, who specialise in removing old carpet tiles, fitting new, recycled ones. Making our business, eco-friendlier and more sustainable which is why we want to encourage other businesses to do the same.

 

How can you help in the battle against climate change?

 

Reduce

 

Opting to reduce the amount of waste your business as part of your corporate social responsibility can have a fantastic planet. This could be anything from sourcing food provided at your business from packaging-free suppliers or installing eco-flush toilets to reduce the amount of water being used by your business. We all have a part to play!

 

Reuse

 

Though not all businesses have the luxury of being able to reuse goods. Simple things such as repairing uniforms instead of throwing them away if an employee damages one, can make a massive difference. By taking them to a seamstress instead of buying new ones, you’re helping the environment and the economy!

 

Did you know that we produce 150 billion garments of clothes every year? There are only 7.5 billion people on the planet.

 

Recycle

 

Recycling is one of the easiest things to implement, ensuring there are accessible recycle bins is the simplest way to improve your CSR and take steps to reduce your carbon footprint. If your business ends up with waste material such as used tires, find a company that can recycle them to make other goods.

 

Renew

 

Investing in renewable energy such as solar or wind power for your workplace can help the environment and help reduce the overuse of fossil fuels. By investing in renewable energy, whether that is on or off-site, will reduce the cost of your electrical bill in the long run.
