Sustainability is not just a trend in consumer attitudes it is and will be the new way of life as we move into a low carbon economy. Here are some resources on how to make your organisation more sustainable.
The League of Intrapreneurs
Lead by some of the biggest change makers in the biggest companies, intrapreneurship is all about making change from within your organisations.
NATIONAL PRODUCT STEWARDSHIP INVESTMENT FUND
This is a government scheme that supports voluntary industry-led programs and co-regulatory schemes to encourage the diversion of products from landfill and the recycling of recovered valuable materials.
Small Changes you can make in your business today that will make a difference
CHANGE OR RECYCLE
Coffee pods are another single use catastrophe. Some brands can be recycled so if you are really attached look here at how it's done. Otherwise just switch to instant or buy an espresso machine.
STOP SELLING IT OR STOCKING IT
Bottled water is one of the biggest threats to our environment through plastic pollution and only about 2% of them ends up recycled. Instead, offer customers water from a large glass jar and sell reusable bottles with your branding on it.
IT'S A MUST
I can't believe so many offices are still not doing this. Allocate a recycling officer and employ an intrapreneur in your business to take responsibility. Have a look at Planet Arks business tools
