Our member engagement programme
We recognise the important role business must play in sustainability; especially regarding mitigating the effects of the climate crisis. No Planet B is broken down into our dedicated steering group, sustainability ambassadors and all of our member engagement campaigns.
A few of the ways our No Planet B ambassadors have helped to engage our staff members on our sustainability & environmental journey in the UK include:
- Eliminating the use of single use plastics from our kitchen office environment
- Implementing cycling ambassadors in all UK offices to promote our cycling initiatives
- Putting staff member engagement at the top of the agenda, organising, and promoting environmental competitions, webinars, articles, and events.
- Encouraging recycling, reusing, and reducing through waste management initiatives.
