What can my organisation do?

Organisations & Businesses

Organisations across Devon are taking action to tackle climate change. There is enormous opportunity to think about the carbon emissions from an organisation’s energy use, transport requirements, supply chain and consumer behaviour to name just a few. Financial savings, for example from using energy more efficiently, can be used to invest in staff and technology.

Actions by organisations have benefits for Devon beyond the direct reduction of climate change. For example, using renewable energy and electric vehicles will bring improved energy security and creates new jobs alongside improving air quality.

If you’re wondering what your organisation can do to address the climate and ecological emergency, look no further. We’ve compiled a list of actions your organisation can do to help address the climate crisis and raise awareness. Explore below for our top tips.

In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, some of the suggested actions may need to be modified.
