Climate Change can be Good for Your Company

• More and more companies are making the link between
addressing climate change and reducing travel costs

the planet; but is also sound business sense

What is your Company’s position?
Where are the Opportunities?
Implementing a proven methodology will deliver both
carbon emission reductions and revenue income
1. Assess company approach
Review your company’s attitude to climate change & capture key corporate
and brand objectives. Obtain senior management sign off and commission
basic CO2 footprint report
2. Define business requirements
Understand CO2 footprint, create a company values statement, policy
direction & targets. Investigate how you can eradicate & reduce travel plus
the scope for compensating via carbon offset schemes
3. Create a programme
Amend and/or create travel policy to include environment targets, advice
and ‘travel smarter’ options
4. Implement the programme
Engage & empower employees: communicate, educate, benchmark
performance & continually review & revise
How to Assess the Opportunities?

emission reductions and cost reduction
