Appearing on a HSBC UK video debate in association with Mortgage Solutions, Kittow (pictured) discussed how businesses should embrace the green agenda.
He said: “As business leaders we should be instilling through our businesses passion to care about the environment.
“It’s also quite cost-effective. Carbon offsetting programs are fantastic and cost as little as three or four pounds a month… small business leaders can make that commitment on behalf of their staff and encourage their staff to get involved in those types of programs as well.
“It’s about taking it seriously and caring.”
Sally Laker, managing director of Mortgage Intelligence, said it was not only about what people did while at work but also how they tried to be sustainable while at home.
Michael Kallaras, managing director of Green Mortgages, said it was down to brokers to inform the public about sustainability.
“Whilst they may want to be sustainable they might not know how to be sustainable. If we can allude to the products and options that are available to homeowners or home buyers then that’s only going to help with that matter,” he added.
