What’s your budget? Uh…
The killer question I ask when helping organisations improve their sustainability is “What’s your budget?”. The answer is usually a “uh…” accompanied by a slight blush.
Like most organisations you have an environment/sustainability policy. It says you are committed to good things X, Y and Z.
How committed? Where’s the money?
To do X, Y and Z someone has to go cap in hand, trying to filch part of someone else’s budget. And you’re surprised things happen slowly?
Make the commitment. Assign a budget. Yes, in a recession. Put your money where your mouth is.
