     Green training that really means business

     Six green pledges by James Reed,                                                     What is the green shift?
     Chairman, Reed Learning
     In 2007 I attended the May Day Climate Change summit, hosted at BT’s office
     in the City of London. The speakers included HRH The Prince of Wales, the Prime
     Minister Gordon Brown, the Environmentalist Jonathan Porritt, the US Senator
     George Mitchell together with representatives from the business community.                                                                                  Actions for the
                                                                                           Commercially                                                           greater good
     The focus of the conference was that it is only by acting now and by acting           motivated actions
     together that the serious threat climate change poses to the world will be
     successfully addressed. Together the 830 companies that signed up to the May
     Day initiative last year had reduced their carbon emissions by 600,000 tonnes.
     Since the conference, we have continued to commit to the six pledges that
     Business in the Community have agreed. These being:
     1. Calculate your company’s carbon footprint
     2. Report your carbon footprint publicly or                                          What is green learning?
        to Business in the Community                                                      It is a myth that a successful organisation cannot also be environmentally
     3. Set an absolute target and take action                                            friendly. In fact there is a growing realisation that business improvements

        footprint at home and at work                                                     that environmental and profit/efficiency motivations can drive each other.
     5. Work in partnership with suppliers to reduce                                      Green learning provides practical tips and guidance, explaining the
        emissions in the supply chain                                                     simple and cost effective steps all organisations can take to become greener,
                                                                                          improve efficiency, save money and become better prospects to employees
     6. Mobilise customers to take action
                                                                                          and customers.
     I’m delighted with the progress we have made in the Reed group since we first
     committed to these pledges in 2007. We have reduced our CO2 emissions by
     2,500 tonnes by installing Thin Terminals across the company, removing bottled       For details see:

     We are a company that cares passionately about the environment and it remains        If you’d like to know a bit more about Green
     a high priority for all of us. However there is a great deal more that we can do.
     I made a pledge at the end of the meeting to move our business from being
                                                                                          Learning, why we think it is so important and
     ‘carbon neutral’ to being truly ‘carbon responsible’. This means that we will seek   what we are doing to live these values visit
     to further reduce our emissions, with a target of a 10% reduction over the next If you think there
     four years. We will achieve this by more recycling, more efficient energy use and,
     of course, fewer meetings!
