Businesses have had a sharp wake up call with a new survey showing fewer people than last year think their workplaces are sustainable.

We want to know your views on sustainability in New Zealand business.

The Sustainable Business Council/Fairfax Business and Consumer Behaviour Survey shows the number of people who think their workplace is sustainable has been steadily sliding on measures ranging from general impressions to procurement policies, to limiting carbon emissions, water and waste.

Part of this may be down to the ongoing recovery from the Global Financial Crisis but there is also the risk that it is because people and businesses are becoming blase about the issue.

What do you think? Does your workplace make an effort with sustainability and, if so, how? If it doesn't, what would you like to see done?

Does a business' sustainability affect your decision to use their services or collaborate with them?
