Green pledges 'can help businesses attract talent'

Green pledges 'can help businesses attract talent'
Making good on environmental pledges can help business attract and retain top talent, one expert has claimed.

Paul Edwards, chair of the British Council for Offices' Environmental Sustainability Group, said there are now a host of incentives for offices to go green, not least the financial side.

Mr Edwards explained it is "good business sense" for firms to make their operations more environmentally-friendly, citing the land fill tax and the rising cost of energy as two prime examples of where they can save money.

The expert went on to say that businesses could also see a positive impact on their human resources by going green.

"I think younger people these days understand environmental issues a lot more so therefore to attract talent and retain talent, companies are seeing a need to deliver on the environmental promise," he added.

The comments come after research by Avery found 47 per cent of UK office staff believed their place of work became greener as a result of the economic downturn, with 52 per cent claiming the task was a shared responsibility between staff, management and the government.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800541586-ADNFCR
