[Upping Your Green Game – Part 2]
Why doesn’t business focus more on upping this green game if it also leads to money savings?
I ask myself this a lot, A LOT.
Reducing cost should always be a key objective of a thriving business. It’s just common sense that if we use less we will spend less. Be it in petrol, packaging, electricity, or raw materials. If a company can figure out how to be more efficient with energy and resources while still maintaining the same quality of product, then going green enables them to cut costs which ultimately results in greater profits. But still you find business reluctant to implement change. Why?
Each business is unique and has different needs. To flex your environmental muscle and make green savings can require some investment of time. Not an easy commodity to come by in business. Perhaps the reluctance for business can also be in not knowing where to start. Or how much it might cost. But there are easy ways for any business to green their operations and make savings. The obvious, of course, are using less energy, less paper, creating less waste etc. No brainers really. That’s why Ecofy designed their simple EnviroFit Assessment for business. A great first step.
