Taking Climate Action
The science of climate change is well established; greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are rising and causing an increase in global temperatures and the frequency of extreme weather events.
We know human activities are the main cause, mainly through the burning of fossil fuels, and that emissions need to be reduced significantly and quickly to halt a further increase.
Many organisations have declared a ‘Climate Emergency’ and recognise the importance of this activity, others have made ‘net-zero carbon’ commitments to focus activity and lower emissions.
Thinking about ‘value’ means embracing complexity; it concerns the consequences of actions and their impacts on our communities and society as a whole.
The best teams and organisations consider what really matters to them and their stakeholders, understanding that this is dynamic and dependent on context and timing.
A compelling narrative about decision-making and its impact and community contribution can be a powerful tool in demonstrating the social value of your activity.
The 3 pillars of sustainability are environment, society, and economy; consideration of each element must be evident in policy, process, and practice to demonstrate it is embedded.
Embedding sustainability is simply part of excellent practice. A team or organisation that strives for excellence will have embedded sustainability and use it to demonstrate impact.
Embedding sustainability is a journey that takes time. We work with those just getting started as well as those leading the way. There is always more to do.
