Message from Denise Harris, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of the Harris Group of Companies.
“We at the Harris Group have embraced the Global Initiative to reduce Carbon emissions. 2011-2020 was the warmest decade recorded, with global average temperature reaching 1.1°C above pre-industrial levels in 2019. Human-induced global warming is presently increasing at a rate of 0.2°C per decade.
An increase of 2°C compared to the temperature in pre-industrial times is associated with serious negative impacts on to the natural environment and human health and wellbeing, including a much higher risk that dangerous and possibly catastrophic changes in the global environment will occur.
Having recognised the serious nature of the situation and acknowledging our corporate responsibilities we have put in place a Company Carbon Policy.
It is up to all of us to leave this planet in better state for future generations to flourish.
