Help your business tap into the future

I thought I'd share with you a recent poll (pdf) I found whilst researching passing the time, which forecasts the environmental views of tomorrow's generation. On first impression, it may not seem too relevant to us in Manchester. The poll was conducted in the US, and focuses on the political views of young people with regard to the Democratic-Republican spectrum. HOWEVER, do not think that it means nothing to us over here. Allow me to explain.

Basically, the future consumers, citizens and leaders of this world are on the whole very interested in all this environmental lark (for the basis of argument I'm assuming that the views of America's youth sort of match the views of UK's youth, which is a fair assumption in the globalised world us young'uns inhabit). No matter what political side of the spectrum young people seem to inhabit, the majority would vote for someone who places high priority on protecting the environment.

This is important news, not just for politics, but for businesses wanting to tap into the interests of future consumers. If you want to make it in tomorrow's world, you will need to have a credible environmental record. Recycling is the first step on this journey, and also the easiest.

For businesses in Greater Manchester, EMERGE can help you get started. We provide full recycling services, including dealing with confidential waste, as well as helpful consultancy services, advice, and carbon literacy training for your staff. Also, if you don't mind me saying so, we are very very nice people. Ethical community-focused business practice is at the core of what we do. And that's what future consumers will be looking for. Take a look at our website for a full list of services and how to contact us.




EMERGE provides environmental education and advice on resource management, waste composition and sustainable procurement issues. 

We are now working in partnership with Cooler to deliver ‘Carbon Literacy’ trainings for businesses across Greater Manchester. This is a relevant, informative and practical training – you will return to your desk/vehicle/role knowing what your personal carbon footprint is and with actions you can do to reduce it.
