The cost of carbon has gone from €4 a tonne in 2017 to €6 a tonne today, which is adding to the cost of doing business. But as the cost of burning carbon increases, so too does the possibility of your company having a low carbon footprint.
Companies like VRAI and Planet Zero exist to help employers create low carbon footprints as a tool for competitive advantage. They tackle Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions and try to implement frameworks that reduce the environmental damage and financial burden that these emissions create.
However, high upfront adaptation costs, as well as a lack of finance mean some companies trying to make their operations more sustainable delay making the commitment to tackle these emissions.
That’s where the Cycle-Friendly Employer accreditation comes in. Creating a culture of cycling within your company is a way of achieving instant Scope 3 emission reductions. Not only does the triple bottom line of your company benefit, so too do your employees, because employees who are active are not only healthier, but also happier and more productive in the workplace.
