If you haven’t heard about the effect that climate change is having on our glorious planet Earth then listen up, the signs are all around you and the planet needs your help!
The business sector accounts for around 70% of carbon emissions globally and, alone, the outdoor sector worth $800 billion (bigger than the world’s top 3 fossil fuel companies combined). So while we only make up a very small portion of this sector, our ability to influence change is far greater than our individual footprint. As an industry that literally needs the earth and as governments set net zero target dates, it is time for organisations like ours to stand up for it and make pledges towards reducing our carbon impact.
