Two thirds of employees are unaware of the sustainability policies of the companies they work for.
That’s according to research by Treedom, which reveals that even though 64% of European businesses have these targets in place, the majority are not enlightening staff on what they mean.
Of those 7,000 workers surveyed, one-in-five have revealed that they are not sure whether their company has a policy whatsoever.
Although the information is not being filtered through the companies, the desire is there – with 64% of employees stating they want to learn about policies, this number reaching 70% for Gen Z workers.
The survey also revealed that opinions on employment are shifting, with 67% claiming sustainability is a key factor when they look for a new role, with Italians the most supportive of this (86%) out of all Europeans.
Federico Garcea, CEO at Treedom, said: “Employees need to be engaged in the sustainability journey to make a lasting positive impact as well as to remain competitive as a business by attracting the best talent.”
