List of Climate Actions

We had a short discussion to make a practical list of things people and co-ops can do to help prevent climate emergency.

Present: Nick, Michal, Max, Naomi

projects / clients / external

  • assess and favour environmental impacts when investigating business leads
  • add environmental impact into proposals early in the process (and possible options)
  • think proactively about initiating projects that address climate emergency (not just doing client work)
  • find funding opportunities for green initiatives
  • make/publicise a more explicit comparison between the immoral Big Tech world

supply chain / internal

  • use environmentally aware service providers where possible
  • look into ways of replacing parts of supply chain with environmentally aware alternatives
  • monitoring carbon emissions / conduct environment audits
  • integrate environmental impact into decision making processes

practical

  • cut down on single use plastics
  • green travel choices / cycling where possible
  • install showers in the office so people can cycle in
  • install a proper kitchen to people can cook and share
  • consider getting a vegbox for the office
  • encourage people to bring food into the office to cook
