Cutting Your Company Carbon
Even small business can make a difference when it comes to reducing our overall environmental impact. From looking at energy consumption in your office to the carbon footprint of staff commuting to work, there are small changes that can add up. How sustainable is your website? Can you reduce image sizes online and energy use with it? There are a range of actions you can take to minimise the environmental effect of your day to day work and technology will definitely be part of that solution.
Michael O’Hara of Techies Go Green in an interview with Open Design and Digital, makes the point that “technology itself will play a major role in cutting emissions” and that “every business needs to be sustainable because in the future the only businesses will be sustainable ones.” O’Hara and his co-founders in Techies Go Green hope to, in the future, confirm verifiable sustainable businesses of the part of the network, certifying businesses as such. The goal is for businesses to aim for carbon neutrality as close to 2030 as possible. Open Design and Digital strives to be an integral part of the growing movement delivering real changes for good in the workplace.
