UK companies are failing to match fine words with positive action in implementing green policies throughout the business, with fewer than one third of respondents believing that they are moving strongly or very strongly to adopting ‘green’ policies in their organisations. So finds a survey of UK enterprise businesses undertaken by Vanson Bourne on behalf of leading unified collaboration and communications services provider, Genesys Conferencing.
“Visitors to any company’s website today are almost certain to find a stated commitment to the environment,” says Jerona Noonan, sales director, Genesys Conferencing. “Yet, as this survey shows, to-date in most businesses this has not been put into practice in the form of positive environmental initiatives.
“More positively, however, the signs are that things are about to change,” she believes, “as one in five has already appointed a ‘green Czar’ to drive environmental initiatives within the business.”
