You cycle to work, you don’t eat meat, your electricity is green, you don’t fly often, you recycle your paper. What else can you do?
The answer - amplify the call for action by the companies and systems that have the biggest impact on climate change .
Climate change won’t be solved by individual action alone. It will be changed when individual action becomes community action, citywide action, national action, global action. Global warming will stop only when there is a change to the systems that drive how we live and work.
Vodafone Germany – a telephone and internet company is showing how this can be done. They use 100% renewable electricity, and they are expanding this to all of their European business.
This is one step, a step in the right direction. If it’s good for marketing too, that’s fine.
Let’s celebrate each step and keep pushing so that companies don’t become complacent, or take part in greenwashing. Let us challenge companies to aspire to climate goals that really make a difference.
