Going Green: Make your pledge!

Going Green, Embracing our planet 

Join the Pledge for a Sustainable Future

At City & Guilds, we believe in the power of collective action to create a sustainable future. That's why we've made a commitment to Going Green, not just on Earth Day, but every day. Our planet is facing unprecedented challenges, from climate change to environmental degradation, and it's up to all of us to take action and make a difference. Join us in our mission to protect and preserve our planet for generations to come.

What is Going Green?

Going Green is the conscious effort to adopt sustainable practices that reduce our impact on the environment. It's about making choices that prioritise eco-friendly alternatives and minimise our carbon footprint.

At City & Guilds, we believe that small changes can make a big impact. That's why we're inviting you to take our Going Green pledge and commit to making carbon reduction changes in your life. By taking the pledge, you'll be collectively working towards a greener, more sustainable future but also joining a movement and community of like-minded individuals. There are countless ways to make a difference, from conserving energy at home to reducing waste. Every small change adds up to create a bigger impact.

Take the Going Green pledge! You will receive a digital badge to showcase your commitment to our planet, to share across your platforms and encourage your networks, friends, family and community to take part too. Together, we can create a more sustainable future for all.

Start your pledge

Need some inspiration? Here are some examples of ways you can make a difference and fulfil your Going Green pledge:

  • Choose sustainable transportation: Opt for public transportation, carpool, bike, or walk. Use fuel-efficient vehicles and limit air travel when possible.
  • Support local and sustainable products: Choose products that are made locally and sustainably, choose to use suppliers that have responsibly sourced materials.
  • Educate and engage others: Talk about it. Spread awareness about climate change and the importance of reducing carbon footprint. Encourage others to adopt sustainable practices in their personal lives or businesses.
  • Support green initiatives: Support policies, regulations, and businesses that prioritize sustainability and environmental protection. 
  • Energy efficiency: Implement energy-saving measures, such as installing LED lights, optimizing heating, ventilation, and using energy-efficient appliances and equipment. 
  • Renewable energy: Switch to renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind power, for electricity needs. Installing solar panels on the roof of your home or business premises can help generate clean energy and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
  • Waste reduction: Implement a comprehensive waste reduction and recycling program. Reduce waste generation by promoting practices such as using reusable cups, bottles, and utensils, and opting for digital communication and documentation rather than printing.
