Businesses, no matter the size, have a huge impact on the environment. If a business simply does not care about their footprint and continues on the way they have been, they could contribute to waste in landfills, Co2 emissions, and so much more. If you want to make sure your business is as eco conscious as possible, below you’ll find 3 quick methods to try:
Encourage Staff To Carpool/Let Them Work From Home
The first thing you can do is encourage your staff to carpool to work together. This instantly reduces cars and traffic on the road as well as dangerous emissions. You could offer some kind of incentive to encourage them to do this! You could even allow staff to work from home, even if it’s just for one day a week. This is so much better for the environment and much better for your budget, too.
Don’t Waste Resources
Make sure your business is not wasting resources. Turn off everything at the end of the day, and don’t print unless you absolutely have to. Make sure everybody is on the same page about this one!
Use Smart Materials For Your Operations
Using smart materials for your operations is key. This means using materials that can be recycled and won’t end up in landfills. While plastic is usually better off avoided, when it comes to things like plastic vs wood pallets, you might be surprised at the better option. Check out the infographic below.
