There's a commercial advantage too. Increasingly tenders and contracts will require evidence that our products, our manufacturing processes, our workplaces and our services actively work to minimise damage to the environment. By demonstrating in no uncertain terms that environmental concerns are factored into every decision that we make, security businesses will immediately become more appealing prospects.
Ticking boxes, improving marketability, and doing the right thing for the world: what's not to like?
This is what we think:
- We think all technology should be green technology.
- We think all businesses need to be green businesses.
- We think we should act before we are compelled to do so by legislation, standards or regulation.
- We think we should actively and continuously look to improve our environmental practices, and work with others who do the same.
This is a call for a change in outlook. We want to explore these issues and others connected with them, and we want to discuss them with you: our peers, partners, colleagues and clients. That's what Connected will set out to do.
Real change, after all, starts with us.
