Resolve to change

Looking for New Year’s resolutions? We’ve got some innovative ideas

Forget hitting the gym or learning Chinese – if you’re looking for ways to make positive changes in 2020, here are some top suggestions to inspire your new way of life.

For a start, it’s time for each of us to take personal responsibility for our impact on the environment. Recycling your plastics is an essential job that we should all embrace but, thanks to the increasing number of innovators today, there are so many more ways in which we can cut our carbon footprint and help to protect the planet.

How much food did you waste over the festive period? It’s been estimated that the equivalent of four million Christmas dinners are wasted in the UK alone during the party season. So, we must start filling our fridges and stomachs more mindfully. Choosing foods that have been produced in a more environmentally friendly way is just one way of doing this, but there are also apps out there to help tackle food waste in a constructive fashion 

If you need some inspiration, check out The FoodTalk Show – you’ll hear interviews with countless food and drink innovators who offer fresh ways to tackle our global problems, from plant-based products to getting the most compact and personalised nutrition solution on the market.

Is your business doing something innovative? Are you overcoming challenges, pushing boundaries and changing the face of your industry? In that case, 2020 is the year to stop hiding your light under a bushel and consider whether you could claim R&D tax credits for your work. We need you to succeed, the government needs you to succeed – so, what are you waiting for?

Here at Breakthrough Group, we can help you to find out whether you’re eligible and put together the claim that could make all the difference to your company’s future.

Finally, if you haven’t already, check out Breakthrough Magazine. It’s packed with examples of UK innovators who are changing the way the world works, now and in the future.

Happy New Year everyone – here’s to an innovative 2020!
