The majority of businesses are currently adopting environmental sustainability practices, according to a new study. However, fewer than one-in-ten firms are actually focusing on reducing their carbon emissions.
With public pressure to address climate change mounting, businesses are finally taking action to try and mitigate their impact on the environment. However, the vast majority of firms are looking into compensatory measures, rather than looking to reduce their actual output of carbon emissions.
A new study from Eden McCallum has surveyed over 150 executives across Europe on their efforts to implement sustainable business practices. First of all, a majority of 78% of all respondents noted they had an environmental sustainability policy in place. While this number varied between publicly listed companies – whose visibility motivated a higher number to have such plans, to have time-bound targets, and to publish them – more private firms had implemented these measures than had not.
