"Just 50% of Companies Have a Sustainability Programme in Place"

A Cpl Insights Report for Q1 reveals that just 50% of companies surveyed have a sustainability program in place of which 31% claimed to have a green committee; 30% a paperless office; and just 25% opted to work only with sustainable suppliers. 

Siobhan O’Shea, Director of Client Services at Cpl, says, “In light of the fact that Ireland will face substantial fines for missing its European 2020 carbon reduction targets, this figure is shocking. Sustainability is now in the mainstream and integral to business success.  It is a key priority, not only for the health of the economy but for overall positive corporate culture and staff retention.”

Furthermore, nearly half of employers surveyed stated that offering flexible work options is now critical for staff retention and 25% cited good work-life balance as being vital in the battle to attract talent.
