Green Toolbox encourages and inspires various sector organizations to apply sustainable working practices in their daily work and within their project and office management. It responds to the questions ranging from how we can choose the most environmentally friendly merchandise and gadgets to most socially responsible banking for our organization; what office and project management practices can do most good and least harm for people, natural environment and animals.
Sustainability is a combination and synergy of social justice, ecological health, and economic vitality. This publication responds to a growing interest in sustainable consumption, addresses urgent global matters, and conveys the necessity for action. It aims to provide NGOs with the tools, information, and inspiration needed to introduce a wide variety of sustainable practices.
Sustainability should be on the agenda for all us. Above all, non-governmental organizations can become empowering role models that help bring sustainability into reality as they hold underutilized power to inspire individuals and communities.
In an increasingly globalized world it is essential to take into account the far-reaching impacts of our purchases, actions, and practices. We need to be aware of the complexity of links and interdependencies between social, economic, and ecological well-being. We believe that by recognizing these global interdependencies and the consequences of everything we do, as well as by striving to minimize the possible negative impacts of all our actions and practices, we will collectively create a just society.
