Organisations of all sizes are becoming increasingly aware of the impact that their activities and operations have on the environment and, in consequence, on our planet and our communities. Because of this, eco-efficiency and sustainability are as important today as investing in staff and adopting the latest technologies.
Many businesses believe that their carbon footprint is negligible. But even organisations that are not directly involved with manufacturing and production have an environmental impact because every business activity uses the planet’s valuable and limited resources.
Why is this important? The truth is that climate change affects us all and reducing the amount of carbon that enters the atmosphere is a central element of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. But it’s not just about ‘doing the right thing’. From a very practical business point of view, customers are increasingly looking for suppliers that have made – and are demonstrating – a commitment to sustainability.
WHAT’S YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT?
Indeed, businesses tendering for many public and private sector contracts are now required to provide evidence of environmental leadership. As a result, organisations that can show they are actively practising carbon offsetting and they have a coherent Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme in place are reaping big commercial benefits. In short, never has ‘doing the right thing’ been so important for businesses!
It’s a cold hard fact that the only way businesses can control and reduce their carbon footprint is to take positive action. But how do they go about this? Toshiba TEC has carefully considered this challenge and, as a result, has made changes to its operations that offset all of the carbon associated with the manufacture, delivery and use of its products.
This paper shares the valuable experience that Toshiba TEC gained as a result of its efforts— showing how your organisation can go ‘Carbon Zero’, and why it should. Read it here…
