Everyone has a part to play in tackling the climate crisis, including organizations big and small. The good news is, it’s easier than you think, and the rewards can be substantial.
Doing Business in a New Climate by Paul Lingl and Deborah Carlson is a step-by-step guide to reducing your organization’s climate impact. It walks you through the key activities of greenhouse gas management, including measuring, reducing and offsetting emissions, as well as developing a communications strategy.
The guide also includes helpful tips and resources, and features success stories of more than 50 organizations from around the world already benefiting from greenhouse gas management.
Besides helping to protect the climate, managing your emissions can reduce your exposure to risk, motivate your employees, enhance your brand, increase the efficiency of your operations and save you money. Wins all around.
Originally developed for the business community, the guide can also be used by governments, educational institutions, event planners, non-profits and other organizations.
It was the first David Suzuki Foundation publication to be re-released as a book. Printed copies can be purchased online, and a portion of the proceeds go to the David Suzuki Foundation.
“If you’re looking to reduce your firm’s greenhouse gas emissions, this is the most practical and readable how-to manual available.”
