The three pre-requisites for sustainable carbon conservation

Friday, December 12th, 2008

As I’ve observed organisations that are successful in reducing their carbon emissions in an on-going way I’ve noticed that they all have three things in place before they begin to significantly cut their carbon:

  1. Leadership commitment. More often that not the most senior level managers will be on the environmental steering committee.
  2. A system in place for accurately measuring and tracking their emissions. They measure what they treasure – in this case their carbon savings.
  3. Wider commitment in their workplace to emissions reduction.

With these three pre-requisites in place these organisations are more likely to move forward to actually cut their carbon pollution.
