Our 2021 Environment Report goes live

20.09.2021

Businesses have a significant role to play in the global race to zero with their operations, transportation, waste and energy usage all contributing towards a sizeable carbon footprint.

For this reason, in 2019 we went and spoke to businesses to gauge their attitudes towards the environment and sustainability, which had become hot issues in the wake of the ‘Blue Planet effect’ and the speeches of Greta Thunberg. These results were published in early 2020 within our first report, Reduce, Re-use, Recycle.

But then the pandemic happened, and business priorities were forced to adjust in the face of massive and unprecedented change.

Attitude changes in 2021

As a result, we wanted to find out where sustainability now sits within business priorities and if the changes prompted by the pandemic have affected their environmental impact. We also wanted to investigate the barriers to change and what actions organisations have been able to commit to.

In the first half of 2021 we therefore sent out a survey to businesses to find out more about their relationship with the environment and their plans for sustainability.

We had a fantastic response from businesses, who also helped us to raise more than £1,000 for the Woodland Trust by completing the survey.

These results have now been analysed and we are proud to present the results in our new report, Race to zero? Business attitudes towards sustainability in 2021.

If you would like to read about the results, you can head over to our summary page where you will also be able to download your own copy of our detailed report.
