The Climate Perks pilot programme is open to any employer ready to boost their staff offer and lead on innovative solutions to the climate emergency.
Concern about climate change in the UK is higher than it has been for a decade. Three quarters of people under 54 are concerned: the majority of almost any workforce. Our research found that 50% of 18-44 year olds would prefer to work for an employer that helps them to take clean travel on holiday. Climate Perks employers can meet this rising demand from staff, and potential recruits, assisting them in making lifestyle choices that reflect their values - strengthening staff well-being, satisfaction and loyalty.
Because there is no technological solution to flying on the horizon, behaviour change is key to cutting carbon from flights. With the workplace so central to modern life, employers can harness the social power of their staff to unlock this new way to cut carbon - pushing beyond more traditional business-focused environmental policies.
As action on climate change rises up the agenda, Climate Perks will help climate conscious companies speed up that action, protecting the future prosperity of staff and employers alike.
Building a reputation as a climate leader
As we approach the 2020s, it is becoming more and more important for organisations to demonstrate climate leadership. Founder members of Climate Perks will be part of an innovative and timely employer-led intervention in one of the hardest areas to decarbonise. Being part of Climate Perks means building momentum, forging a path for other employers to follow.
All Climate Perks pioneers will be able to use the Climate Perks accredited stamp of recognition, be listed publicly on the Climate Perks website and be invited to benefit from public PR and press coverage.
