This guide aims to encourage union representatives to get going on greening their workplaces. Trade unions across Europe face the triple challenge of austerity, climate change and energy costs and security. We are consuming energy and natural resources at a totally unsustainable rate. We burn more energy, consume more resources, and generate more waste at the workplace and while commuting than we do at home. So the workplace is an excellent place to start.
This Guide provides advice on good practice from trade union activists across the EU. It shows how union representatives and Works Councillors have tackled saving energy for heating and light, travel to work, recycling and other initiatives.
