Climate scientists, ecologists, and activists are warning us that the climate is in crisis, with the sixth mass extinction already well underway: a catastrophe for the biodiversity of the planet upon which we rely. 

Having grown up in South Africa, I can appreciate the beautiful biodiversity of our planet, and the great losses we are causing to these environments by our slow reaction to Climate Change. At Tyck, we believe strongly in the message that activists are trying to send: the leaders of our country, and countries around the globe, must recognise this emergency and support cultures of conservation in order to reduce damage to the climate.

At Tyck, we have begun taking action as a business, and have recently installed a smart energy metre in our business address to help us be more aware of the energy we’re consuming and how we can act to reduce it. 

We also work with our great team of clients, opening the possibilities for more online solutions to the CRM, Financing and team collaboration issues that face their businesses. By moving these important business functions onto the internet, we can reduce paper usage and other excessive consumption such as printing and photocopying while also delivering the great efficiencies to the business we all know the internet can bring.

Tyck can help you look for and implement smarter technology in your business, along with those things already mentioned above, we have also helped clients with all of these steps in supporting our environment:

  • Eliminating fax machines and swapping to E-Mail and Instant Messaging
  • Introducing Online Vault Apps to share contracts with clients with paperless signatures
  • Installing Smart Lighting and Water Metres into registered addresses

According to studies conducted by The Carbon Trust, virtual working has the potential to reduce carbon emissions by 3 million tonnes per year. Whilst also recognising all of the other benefits of virtual working, such as flexibility, access to support globally, and lower costs for your business: hiring a Tyck virtual assistant can help to reduce your carbon footprint. 

Within the next 10 years, we are only going to see more evidence of climate change and how it impacts our environment, which will increasingly drive us to reduce our carbon wastage and slow the damage to our world. We found this great infographic which highlights the benefits of using a Virtual Assistant, both commercially and for the environment. 

There is still a long way to go in reducing our carbon emissions, and we support the peaceful campaigns around the globe in raising awareness for these important issues. We feel that there is a lot more the government can be doing to support businesses of all sizes in reducing their carbon footprint: from grants towards accessible paperless business solutions and tax reliefs on the latest environment friendly office and commercial equipments. 

By joining together as business owners, we believe we can begin to make a difference at a time need to make it the most.
