How Can We Be A More Environmentally Responsible Company?

Environmental Journal

Entry 1: The start.

The saying goes “you have to start somewhere” and I feel like this has been a long time coming. Today is the day I finally talk to the elephant in the room, not just because it is there, but because it is getting bigger.

I am starting this journal today for a few reasons. I will keep them brief and concise – there will be plenty of time to get deeper as this thing progresses.

This is my list:

  1. I am concerned about the health of our planet.
  2. I want to hold myself accountable.
  3. I want to do better.
  4. I want our business to do better.
  5. I want to stop

For as long as I can remember I have let my frustrations get the better of me. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t feel slightly hypocritical when discussing issues of the environment, but I am slowly starting to realise that my frustration is just another excuse – something I need to get over if I am going to make a difference.

Today is the start of something bigger than me. That scares the shit out of me but is something that needs addressing one small step at a time…

I hope you join me as I get this all off my chest and hopefully we can inspire each other along the way, because I can’t do this on my own.
