Consumers and investors are demanding significant change in sustainability, make no mistake this is a revolution and with every industry and most of our habits under scrutiny – it would be downplaying it to call it anything else.  As an example, the cars driven by your executives will come under scrutiny as companies will now be expected to lead by example.  Covid 19 has created a real sense of urgency for business to improve their environmental credentials.  The time for people and businesses to act is now.

Every organisation needs to reduce its CO2 footprint by 50% by 2030 and achieve zero carbon by 2050.
