Event description

Description

6heads and 10:10 are both passionate about climate action, and the innovative solutions to make that as easy as possible.

Reducing the amount we fly is one of the most impactful behavioural changes we as regular travellers can make to cut carbon, but time is a huge barrier to opting for flight-free holidays.

Cue Climate Perks; a scheme enabling employers to offer paid ‘journey days’ to empower staff to choose low-carbon holiday travel. The perfect solution for those who love to travel the world and protect it too.

6heads and 10:10 have teamed up for an interactive session all about how to get involved with Climate Perks.

When: Tuesday 11th June - 6.00 - 8.00 pm

Where: 10:10 HQ - 8 Delancey Passage, Camden, NW1 7NN (5 min walk from Camden Station)

Format:

6.00- 6.30 - Arrive, connect, drinks and snacks

6.30 - 6.45 - Discover - Hear from the brains behind Climate Perks scheme and businesses who are already onboard.

6.45 - 7.45 - Engage and explore - A participatory discussion led by attendees on how to adopt Climate Perks, build momentum and how to overcome potential barriers for engagement.

7.45 - 8.00 - Call to action - Agree next steps for those who want to join Climate Perks pilot scheme - which means building momentum and forging a path for other employers to follow.

This is going to be an informal get together and roundtable for Climate Perks pioneers with places strictly limited. We would love you to join the conversation if you are:

  • A hyper - connected influencer and willing to champion Climate Perks to your network through media, events and campaigns.

  • An employee in an organisation and think Climate Perks could be adopted and would like to know more about how it works before having an internal conversation.

The Climate Perks pilot programme is open to any employer ready to boost their staff offer and lead on innovative solutions to the climate emergency.

A bit more about Climate Perks

Concern about climate change in the UK is higher than it has been for a decade. Three quarters of people under 54 are concerned: the majority of almost any workforce. Our research found that 50% of 18-44 year olds would prefer to work for an employer that helps them to take clean travel on holiday. Climate Perks employers can meet this rising demand from staff, and potential recruits, assisting them in making lifestyle choices that reflect their values - strengthening staff well-being, satisfaction and loyalty.

Cutting carbon

Because there is no technological solution to flying on the horizon, behaviour change is key to cutting carbon from flights. With the workplace so central to modern life, employers can harness the social power of their staff to unlock this new way to cut carbon - pushing beyond more traditional business-focused environmental policies.

As action on climate change rises up the agenda, Climate Perks will help climate conscious companies speed up that action, protecting the future prosperity of staff and employers alike.

Building a reputation as a climate leader

As we approach the 2020s, it is becoming more and more important for organisations to demonstrate climate leadership. Founder members of Climate Perks will be part of an innovative and timely employer-led intervention in one of the hardest areas to decarbonise.

All Climate Perks pioneers will be able to use the Climate Perks accredited stamp of recognition, be listed publicly on the Climate Perks website and be invited to benefit from public PR and press coverage.
