Innocent drinks: leading from the front

innocent bananas.png

innocent is now one of Europe’s best known drinks companies. They have built their business around the belief that they should always leave things better than they find them, across the whole supply chain. As they grow in size, they are committed to maintaining their leadership position on sustainability and ethics.

innocent is always looking for new and innovative ways to keep sustainability at the front of employees’ minds.

In the build up to COP21 they used Do Nation to both show their support for a strong climate change agreement and to demonstrate that by getting everyone at innocent to make little changes in their everyday lives, they could together save a lot of carbon. 

A whopping 62% of their employees took part over the month, together making over 1,000 pledges.

Download the full case study of how innocent used Do Nation to engage employees and cut carbon.

But one thing’s clear: if we’re to get there, it’s going to take us all.

We all need to act.
