Company executives should be encouraged to go green
by having their bonuses linked to environmental targets, a new
survey has suggested.
Research by the Unite union discovered that some 83 per cent of
respondents felt their office wasted energy and resources.
Additionally, 87 per cent believed unions should play a major part
in developing measures that will reduce the negative impact of the
workplace on the environment, which may interest eco-conscious
Commenting on the issue, Hilary Benn, secretary of state for the
environment, food and rural affairs, said: "The commitment of
industry to deal with climate change is growing in the UK.
"I believe that trade unions and their members have a vital role to
play. Trade unionists can really help change to happen in the
workplace as part of the move to a lower carbon economy."
Unite national officer Peter Skyte said: "no employer will make
money from a dead planet."
