Green steps by our clients

At the start of our One Step Greener series we shared the steps that we are taking to reduce our image on the planet. 

Associations and membership organisations across industries are implementing their own initiatives in order to play their part in tackling climate change. Many have joined forces in sector schemes such as Climate Action For Associations and the SME Climate Hub.

In this final blog we share examples from a selection of our clients on the steps that they are taking to become greener.
