The Scale of the Net Zero Challenge

The price of meeting net zero is estimated to be between $100-150 trillion over the next 30 years. Regardless of this cost, we need to reach net zero before climate change does irreversible damage to the environment and the economy.

ESG, Sustainability and Impact Jargon Buster

ESG, sustainability, impact… they all just mean green, right? Not quite. Despite being used often interchangeably, there are distinct differences between these terms.

Summary

Nonviolent communication (NVC) is also known as compassionate or collaborative communication and was developed by clinical psychologist Marshall Rosenburg. Nonviolent here means empathetic and seeking not to hurt others with our words. For example: Saying to someone, ​You made me mad! i​s really just blaming somebody else for your feelings of anger. And this, we’d call ​violent communication​ in that it’s intended to hurt the other person. On the other hand, saying to someone ​When you shouted at me, I noticed I felt angry, i​s considered non-violent communication​ and very much owns your experience. You are now speaking from your own experience and using “I” statements.

‘I’ statements tend to place responsibility on you, the speaker, and they help clarify your position, feelings or opinions. They build trust by giving others information about yourself and are often less threatening.

‘You’ statements, on the other hand, tend to place blame or put people down and come off as being accusatory or preachy. This usually elicits a negative or defensive response. For example, “I couldn’t understand what you said” will generally land better than “You didn’t make any sense”. You could try  “I missed having your input at the meeting”  rather than ”You didn’t care enough to come to the meeting”.

Distancing language or generalisations are other common ways we hide from saying how something is really affecting us.  “You know when you get really frustrated when people are late.” “Don’t you hate it when…” “Everyone knows life is hard.”

One way we sneak judgements in, whilst sounding like we’re using I’ statements is “I feel like…”. That little ‘like’ switches this from sharing an emotion to sharing a judgement. I feel like you’re ignoring me is not an emotion! “I notice I feel sad because I imagine you’re ignoring me” is much more likely to get you the result you want. “I notice” is a powerful way to be a little more objective about what’s happening.
