Going Green With Your Business

It is important that you as the owner of a company take all appropriate measures to make sure that your office is as environmentally friendly as possible. Most offices use up a lot of paper and are very instrumental in leaving a strong footprint in terms of environmental destruction and therefore as a responsible citizen, it is important that you take steps to change the way your office works. In fact, you can even use this in your advertising in order to attract many environment conscious customers who will choose to work with you because of your initiatives over the next company that does not take such initiatives.

Print less and go paperless

One of the first things you will need to implement in your company is to make sure that your staff do not print out a lot of documents but instead choose to work online and send out emails instead of printing out documents. You could invest in a reliable software that will help you to achieve this as it would mean you would need to print less since you will be able to have most of the data already on your computer.

Although you may feel that investing your money on a POS ecommerce software is a bit too much of an expense for your company, you will see that on the long run, you are actually saving money because you will be saving on paper, ink, printer maintenance and also on electricity in having to use printers over and over again.

You can even have a small competition initiative where you award a small gift to the staff member who is making the best effort to go green for your company. You can even have a small team building initiative where you divide your office staff in to teams and have them come up ideas to help preserve electricity and help your company become environmentally friendly. You can judge the teams on their ability to work together as a team, their ability to implement ideas in to the main idea and also the overall idea where you can award a prize to the best team and the best idea that will save you the most amount of money for the company.

In addition to all this, it is important that you invest your companies’ money only in products that are environmentally friendly and recycled paper in order to take your cause further. It is vital that you have all of your company’s waste recycled at the end of every month as well.
