Although recent news headlines have been dominated by the global spread of coronavirus, it is important to remember that we have a far greater threat facing the planet – global warming. In recent years, scientists and governments have started to highlight the plight of the world we live in due to climate change, and our need to make changes to stop it.
As an employer, making these sorts of changes are important, and one of the ways that you can do this is by creating a workplace ‘green team’.
To start off, you will need to get a group of people together (small or large, it depends on the size of the organisation) and get them to form themselves into a team to drive green initiatives. This has the added benefit of also encouraging good teamwork as well.
There are many ways that a team can help to organise and come up with environmentally friendly changes to the workplace – for example, they could find someone such as this business recycling Cheltenham based company to collect all of the recyclable items that are currently being taken to landfill.
The team can promote better habits in the workplace, when it comes to waste disposal – for example, setting up a compost bin is a great idea. They can also come up with ideas such as car share schemes, which will benefit the employee’s pockets where they save on fuel, as well as the planet!
