The Global View

UK bosses shun green ethics

Although 93% of UK directors are cutting their carbon footprint at home, the majority neglect their green principles when it comes to running their businesses.

And fewer than one in four UK directors views reducing carbon emissions at work as a priority, with a further 29% believing that it isn’t a relevant issue for their business at all.

Surprisingly, 30% of respondents stated they wouldn’t be embarking on any green initiatives in the next 12 months, while 5% stated they do not believe in global warming and think the government is just trying to raise taxes.

Citrix and PURE sponsored the research. The cheeky pair of firms has set up this advice site. There’s no marketing involved, honest.
