Recycling, reducing waste and lowering energy costs are just some of the options that businesses have to go a little “greener” in 2017. There are plenty of reasons for you to go green personally, but why would a business bother with it? After all, small businesses are all about the bottom line.
In reality, going green can have a big impact on your profits in more ways than you might think. It’s even a fundamental value many small businesses will flaunt to develop loyal customers.
You can lower you energy costs, which is a big portion of your overhead. Encouraging your employees to turn off lights and computers while on break or at the end of the day will produce big effects.
However, how do things like recycling or encouraging car pools help to save you money? They may not. In fact, they may actually make you money! Offering green technology at work is a great way for employers to attract talent and consumers. People are losing their loyalty for companies at the same time they’re increasing loyalty for themselves and their careers. Use what you can to keep them attracted to you and check out some cool, easy ideas for going green in 2014.
