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:
- Leadership commitment. More often that not the most senior level managers will be on the environmental steering committee.
- A system in place for accurately measuring and tracking their emissions. They measure what they treasure - in this case their carbon savings.
- 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.
