What is a climate friendly company?
Being climate friendly means that a company is proactively reducing their carbon footprint to slow global warming and help the environment.
It involves three basic steps:
CALCULATE carbon emissions and other greenhouse gases from activities.
REDUCE emissions wherever possible through increased efficiencies.
BALANCE your remaining emissions with carbon offsets.
Businesses that look to the future are realising the inevitable transition to a low carbon economy with growing pressure from governments and consumers.
