Why should a business care about sustainability?
1 in 3 consumers now will stop buying from a company that they don't feel is eco-conscious
While there is a lot of greenwashing to be eliminated and consumer education to be completed, it's clear that there is a rise in conscious consumers demanding more of companies.
UK Companies are bound by law to hit 80% reduction in their carbon emissions by 2030
You might not believe this with the way our current government are approaching their own reduction but they have set in law that businesses must meet an 80% reduction by 2030 and then remove the remaining by 2050. That's 10% a year, every year from now.
There is still lots of critical infrastructure required to achieve this but all businesses can do more and until you take on the challenge of understanding where you are, you will continue to fall behind.
Our approach to sustainability
When we started our company nearly 6 years ago we wanted to work with 'good' companies but what on earth does 'good' even mean in the context of business?
We wanted to find ways to accurately measure and reduce any negative impact on the world and we wanted it to be more than just environmental. We started with our Carbon Footprint and then began our journey working with the United Nations Global Compact to explore the Global Goals.
Now we have developed our own approach using these frameworks to create a deeper impact report, perfect for SMEs to engage multiple stakeholders and transition to a truly ethical and sustainable business.
We offer a complete Carbon Footprint, measuring Scope 1, 2 & 3. Alongside a life-cycle assessment for any products or services that you are interested in investigating. Our focus remains on a reduction strategy to be Carbon Neutral by 2030 and while we acknowledge that offsetting is a positive thing, we believe that reduction is far more important and will focus our support on the Carbon Trust definition of neutrality.
A challenge we have in the world of sustainability is getting that story and the work you are doing out into your stakeholders in a way that engages and excites them. Either sustainability reports are boring or they sit hidden away. We write reports that are simple and exciting for multiple people.
Looking at your global impact we will support you to align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We are using more resource than we can put back into the planet, we are letting our most vulnerable people in society suffer more and more. We have to consider how your organisation has a global impact, while looking at its local community too.
We worked with CMP (Cornwall Museums Partnership) to integrate sustainability into their business plan. Tackling their vision for the charity and how they could approach multiple areas of sustainability in one plan.
