Setting a climate policy does not have to be hard or time consuming, it could be a few simple guidelines that could help employees a lot in their everyday decisions. Here are some examples of what can be included in a climate policy:
We serve vegetarian or vegan food as a standard. Meat is available as an add on. We reduce our food waste by informing employees that there is food left over for them to take home.
We prioritise digital meetings and train travel. We do not fly domestically. Locally, we travel fossil-free.
We choose suppliers with their own climate and environmental policies in place.
We use IT equipment such as computers and mobile phones as long as they are in working order. They are replaced only when necessary. We give new employees the opportunity to choose second-hand equipment.
We prioritise buying second-hand office furniture, fittings, kitchen equipment, etc.
Couriers and transport
We work with fossil-free couriers.
We encourage and facilitate our employees to choose pension suppliers that help rather than hinder climate action.
We do not use giveaways to avoid unnecessary consumtion.
We spread the word
We talk to our customers and suppliers about our climate-friendly choices, spreading the word!
