In this day and age, when it comes to running a business, one of your main priorities is saving money as well as making it! And one of the easiest ways to save money within a business is to go green and look after that carbon footprint.
The Quick Fixes:
There are several really simple things you can do to reduce your business’s impact on the environment as well as lowering your fuel bills:
• Switching from standard bulbs to LEDs – although the initial payment may seem a little costly, the payback time is very fast. The standard light bulb may only last between 1-2,000 hours however an LED will last between 25-50,000 hours.
• Turning off equipment when it’s not in use can help you save an extra 25% of energy – this will involve all your employees working together to ensure this happens.
• Email is the way forward! Try to encourage communication by email and telephone instead of post and always think twice before printing something off.
Going Green on a Large Scale:
If you want to make significant savings on your energy bills there is one clear way of doing this – and that is to incorporate green technology systems into your business properties. Things like solar panels and solar heating systems are an excellent way of cutting your fuel bills as well as significantly reducing your carbon footprint.
