Climate change is a monstrosity of a topic, so naturally there’s a lot of work to be done to tackle it. But it feels like, sometimes, companies believe every sustainability initiative they roll out must be major, if it is to have an environmental impact. Yet really, what’s perhaps more powerful, is the collective effort of as many people as possible, and the continued achievement of even marginal gains.
In thinking about some simple steps to developing a stronger sustainability agenda, we gathered the thoughts of Vapour colleagues recently. And they had PLENTY of ideas, large and small.
Remember that ‘every little helps’ so to speak, so a clearly communicated mission statement should encourage employees – everyone in the business – to also be considerate and responsible for their own behaviours at the workplace and at home. ‘Green thinking’ then stands a better chance of growing to become a mindset, rather than simply a fad.
This year, instead of sending Christmas presents to customers in celebration of the festive season, Vapour will plant a tree for future generations to enjoy. This small gesture forms part of our recent pledge to become net zero by 2040. Watch this space for more information.
