The actuality of climate change is still a very important issue hat is intensively covered by different sources of information, would it be broadcast, print or new media. According to the expecting threats that this problem might cause not each organization that aims to improve the situation in this direction but each person has to take part and put his/her efforts to advantage of surrounding environment. This time our attention is driven to the government’s new goal of reducing carbon emissions by 80 per cent by 2050.
According to the SOURCEWIRE, the remarks come after the UK government's official climate change advisers, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC). They aim raise the bar on ambitions to cut CO² emissions. But is should be taken into consideration that such a huge work can not be accomplished only by the government. As The Carbon Trust admits business and public sector are responsible for up 45% of UK carbon emissions.
Michael Calvert says: “Many UK businesses have realised that they need to be responsible employers and are starting to address green issues. However, what’s needed is a sustained commitment to reducing CO² emissions. For many organisations this means introducing stringent policies to instigate change. Commuting to and from work and meetings has a huge impact on carbon emissions, for example. By introducing flexible working and home working, companies could positively contribute to environmental change.”
Michael Calvert adds: “Many of the UK’s commuters – if equipped with the right, readily-available technology – could do their job equally well, if not better, from home, it’s a wonder why more firms are not enabling flexible working and home working practices. Of course it needs the right technology – Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phones for cheaper, more effective communications, and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) for secure remote access.”
The initiation of the UK is worth paying attention and following the steps to reduce CO² emissions for the other countries too. Than the indicators of the percentage of CO² emissions will decrease much more than 80% by 2050 for the whole environment than for only one country.
