Allow Remote Work: Just like going paperless, allowing your employees to work from home can have an incredibly positive impact on the environment. A study stated that working remotely for four days of the work week could reduce nitrogen dioxide emissions from traffic by 10%.
Align Company Values: If one person recycles, it's nice, but if everyone recycles, results will come to life. The same goes for business; if everyone aligns their interests in favor of being more sustainable, it will create a genuine ripple effect.
Use Sustainable Suppliers: If you're pulling out all the stops to minimize your environmental impacts but support businesses who do nothing or the bare minimum to protect the environment, you could, in theory, be helping to fund unsustainable practices. Be wary of suppliers who do not have their environmental commitments at the heart of their corporate social responsibility efforts, and try to use CarbonNeutral® certified suppliers wherever you can.
Switch To Online Meetings: Transport accounts for around one-fifth of global CO2 emissions. So, if everybody traveled a little less, there is certainly room for large reductions in collective CO2 emissions.
