From raging bushfires in Australia to storm-battered and flooded park businesses in the UK, there’s no denying the effects of climate change. The message is clear: time is running out and action on a global scale must be taken. As such, Compass is committed to becoming a more sustainable business.
Becoming greener and reducing our environmental footprint is not something that we will achieve overnight, but we needed to start somewhere… So, on Monday 5th July Compass launched its “green pledge” and now the whole team is working on a number of initiatives to improve the business’ green credentials.
Ultimately, we want to aim high – our biggest and toughest aspiration is to eventually become a carbon neutral business. In the meantime, our other targets include going paper-free (and/or offsetting any essential paper usage) by 2025.
We’ve already has already introduced some “quick wins”, including:
• The printing of new marketing collateral on 100% recycled paper
• The creation of digital versions of marketing materials where possible
• Choosing 100% recycled and/or biodegradable products for events
We’re also auditing the products, suppliers, and service providers we use; our energy and water usage; our car usage; and our reduce, reuse and recycle processes
