A large majority of offices these days have recycling bins but, unfortunately, these bins are sometimes more symbolic and decorative than functional.
We all know the benefits of running a sustainable business but simply dotting recycling bins around the office isn’t going to get you anywhere if you’re not ensuring that they’re used properly. Of course, a recycling bin isn’t what sustainability (and going circular) is all about but it demonstrates your positive attitude towards the concept.
Sustainability means running your business in a way which minimises its impact on the environment and encouraging those in your network and your customers to do the same. It involves implementing a circular business model that ultimately saves on valuable resources, encourages innovation and can pave the way for millions of new jobs.
