The idea of changing your business up can be daunting. At times you may think that it is far too complex for you to be getting involved in, but this is not the case at all. In fact, it’s now easier than ever for you to be running a way more sustainable business. Want to find out more? Simply look below.
Introduce your Own Recycling Scheme
One of the best and the easiest ways for you to make sure that your business is environmentally friendly would be for you to start up a recycling scheme. First of all, you have to make sure that you identify any of the consumables that you have in your office. You may want to deal with any scrap paper, and you also need to try and recycle any cans and tins from lunch too. It’s also important that you recycle printer and toner cartridges. This will help you to ensure that you are not throwing away more waste than you need. Next, take the time to set up any recycling bins around the office. Make sure that you put them in areas where you expect to have a high volume of traffic. If you can do this then you will easily be able to make a difference.
New Ways to Commute to Work
Rising emissions as well as the fact that a London cyclist accident regularly occurs during rush hour – which the Mulderrigs’ blog reports as being a high proportion of all accidents in London, 2016 – not to mention collisions with pedestrians, have no doubt contributed to the pivot towards removing cars from the centre of cities and towns and investing in public transport. Both pedestrianisation and investment make cycling, walking, and using public transport appealing to commuters because it’s safer, cleaner, and, importantly, greener.
In this digital age, you have to make sure that you go paperless if possible. Going paperless will come with very few downsides. It will help you to save money and it will also help you to make sure that any documents get delivered faster too. If you print handouts for meetings, then don’t do this anymore. Send out PDF files instead. If you can do this, then you will soon find that you are able to reap all of the benefits without harming the environment.
Remote working has easily become popular over the years and technology has made it much easier. The great thing about working remotely is that it gives your team the chance to avoid their work commute and it also means that you can cut down on the amount of emissions too. Imagine how much pollution you could save if you asked your team to work from home just a few days a week? Working remotely also gives you the chance to use up way less office space. You won’t have to rent as much, and this can really help you to make sure that you end up getting the best result overall.
