This is the first of a series of posts planned to shed light on the many ways Book Sprints will explore becoming a greener organisation. While we are still in the planning stages, Book Sprints has donated funding to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in direct response to the tragic wildfires in Australia.
After a review of several charitable organisations that are working to deliver relief in the area, WWF was chosen for the broad spectrum of action they are taking in response to the devastation, as well as their medium and long term plans for dealing with likely bushfires in the future. The organisation is proactively replanting impacted vegetation, which will contribute to restoring the ecosystem as well as the wildlife who depend on it.
Donating to an environmental organization is just a small step. What we are looking for are ways we can minimize our impact on climate change. We are investigating alternatives to the ways we provide our services. We strongly believe in the engagement that comes from face-to-face interactions. That involves traveling, often long-distance, for our team of facilitators and participants of a Book Sprint.
While we don’t have a solution yet, we are asking ourselves: How can we experiment with blending ‘remote’ online and onsite facilitation? When can we substitute air travel with train rides? How do we best support environmental projects with our services?
Stay tuned, as we will update you on our pledge to model a greener business.
