Business and Climate Change
Many businesses and individuals are confused by the complexity of climate change. They do not know where to begin, mostly because they don’t understand how their actions contribute to the problem and what the alternatives and solutions are. This is highly ineffective, since simple actions can have highly positive impacts, and often opportunities arise for organisations in the context of climate change if this challenging problem is being addressed.
Early adopters are embracing environmental strategies as a way of achieving their business and environmental goals. Clever companies are taking advantage of new markets and consumer trends towards climate friendly products. What our customers have found is that doing a carbon footprint is a logical step to support their sustainability initiatives.Some 114 000 green jobs could be created in two years if the government’s intention to incentivise green industries is successful.
