Reducing carbon footprint
The global education NGO I work for is beginning to think about how to reduce its carbon footprint. This comes mostly from flights (we're a people business and our business is helping different NGOs learn from each other through conferences, visiting other sites, flying in consultants etc). We've done a lot to increase our virtual work - which is working in some ways, but we're finding it hard to reduce/replace the travel as a result - especially when so much of what we do runs on relationships. I'd love to find examples either of NGOs or businesses where their main footprint is not based on materials/products but rather their travel where they are taking this on in a meaningful way. Additionally, I'd like to learn about how we could use offset projects to further our mission's work - but that's tough to know where to start on... offsets seem like such a minefield. So far, most of my research has yielded grand-sounding sustainability statements or very marginal action which isn't very inspiring. Any pointers or is anyone taking this on in their workplaces?
When this year started, your salary was probably worth more than it is now. Although you’re still making the same amount of money, it’s likely not going as far as it used to even a few months ago. With inflation being around 15%, everyone is currently raising their prices. So, why can’t you do the same?
