UNESCO defines the precautionary principle as:
“When human activities may lead to morally unacceptable harm that is scientifically plausible but uncertain, actions shall be taken to avoid or diminish that harm. Morally unacceptable harm refers to harm to humans or the environment that is:

inequitable to present or future generations, or
imposed without adequate consideration of the human rights of those affected.”

Work with local NGOs, your customers, partners, industry organizations (CDP) and others for sustainability advice and assistance
Use the behavioural nudge of opting-in to the less-sustainable choice rather than opting-out of it
