The alarming advance of climate change, highlighted by this and other startling phenomena, means the fight against global warming has become crucial to our planet. Wildfires are burning out of control around the world, including the USA, Russia, Israel, Spain, Greece and Bulgaria. At the same time devastating floods have hit the UK, Sweden, India, China, Bangladesh, Russia and Japan to name a few.
As yet, governments have failed in slowing global CO2 emissions, which are still spiralling upwards despite the hard realities now showing the forecasts of catastrophic climate change to come. Extreme weather is part of the cycle scientists have predicted and first indications are that unless businesses act proactively and become the driving force behind environmental action, we may really do too little too late.
Offsetting your businesses emissions can cost as little as 1% of your profits, for some service based companies even less.
