As an employer, it is also important that you focus on making green changes to your business – here are a few things that you can do to help fight climate change as a business…
Save Water – There are many ways that you can save water as a business. If you have any leaky taps or pipes, get them repaired. There are also lots of eco friendly water systems that you can use, so you can end up saving a lot of water, as well as saving money on your water bill!
Recycle – There is a lot of waste that goes to landfill which can actually be recycled. Look into finding a local business recycling service who will be able to provide bins for recyclable materials. You could get an office green team assembled to make people aware of what can be recycled and where it goes.
Focus on Green Travel – A company carpool or a ride a bike to work scheme are both great ways to get your company to be more environmentally friendly.

Supply bike racks to store the bikes whilst at work for people who cycle – some companies even offer money towards a bike to encourage people to cycle to work.
