Why we all need to prepare for floods and droughts here in the UK

When you’re looking out at heavy rain, it’s difficult to imagine drought as an issue in the UK. So the statistic that there is less fresh water per person in the South East of England than there is per person in Morocco is quite shocking.

Businesses CAN go green and still be successful. And now’s the time for businesses to lead the way in cutting their carbon footprint and getting the UK to Net Zero emissions before 2050. Vicky Murray has been Sustainability Manager at Pukka Herbs for two years.

Great news hit the headlines when our new YouGov poll showed a record number of Brits want to take action on climate change. Even more impressively, we’re willing to pay more taxes to see that happen. But that's not the only bit of good news.

We have just 11 years for governments, businesses and communities to cut greenhouse gas emissions by a massive 45%. Yet in 2018, global carbon emissions increased by 2.7%. Here in the UK, greenhouse gas emission reductions stalled in many areas including the business sector. There is no avoiding this issue. We have to ramp up climate action drastically to stay within safe levels of warming. So, is your business ready for the changing climate?
