We are the first generation of people who actually know that we are destroying our world and if things don't improve, we could be the last to do anything about it. The problem is a very common misconception, one in which we believe that we have more time to change things than we actually do. This is not the case. Plastic is choking our wildlife, the food we eat is costing our future and climate change is now one of the biggest threats to people and nature.
A recent study carried out by leading climate scientists around the world revealed that we only have 12 years to limit the climate change catastrophe. If we fail, we're sure to see more floods, extreme heat, more droughts and mass poverty.
Did you know that the average person in the UK throws away their body weight in rubbish every 7 weeks, and all of it has got to go somewhere?
Despite what our eyes may tell us, waste doesn't just disappear...
Workplaces are one of the biggest contributors to waste, in fact, some workplaces can produce up to 6 times more waste than the average household! Every organisation can make a difference by reducing its carbon footprint. A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions either an object, person, household, or workplace produces.
The aim of the game is less - less waste, less pollution, less energy usage.
Reducing its carbon footprint is not only the right thing for an organisation to do, but by meeting any legal obligations that are required, they can avoid any legal costs or damage to their reputation.
