"Some employers are already doing a lot of good. But whatever your stage of development, you can join them and reap the benefits of engaging staff on low carbon activities."

Doing good business can also mean, simply, doing good. Carbon emissions are driving climate change and are unsustainable, at current levels. Future generations - actually current generations, because many changes are not that far off - are relying on us to do more to limit the damage these emissions are causing.
