4 in 10 employees inclined to contribute to sustainability agenda

But 68% of them said their companies do not involve them in green initiatives.

Four in 10 employees in Hong Kong are inclined to help reduce carbon emissions in their respective workplaces, a survey from JLL showed.

However, out of the 200 employees surveyed, 68% said their companies do not involve them in green initiatives and 57% are not aware of their workplace’s carbon reduction goals.

Unawareness of companies’ carbon reduction goals amongst employees (60%) and non-involvement of employees in green initiatives (65%) was also seen all over Asia-Pacific (65%). 

Given the results of the survey, JLL urged business leaders in Hong Kong “to engage with employees and achieve carbon reduction in the workplace.”

“The rising awareness on sustainability has created a significant opportunity for business leaders to take aggressive action and team up with the employees to reduce carbon emissions in the workspace,” JLL’s HK Managing Director Gavin Morgan said.

With about 60% believing that offices can be highly impactful in reducing carbon emissions, the majority of employees surveyed—8 in 10—said businesses also “must” have green initiatives. 

Meanwhile, 75% expect their companies to follow sustainable business practices.
