How green is your team?
Aside from the moral obligation we’re all feeling in modern day society to be cleaner and greener in the way in which we conduct our lives, there are reasons why it pays for you and your team to be more environmentally aware in your business.
Sending waste to landfill is increasingly becoming more expensive, as well as damaging the environment. And, if your company is causing environmental damage through pollution, it will risk incurring a fine of several thousands of pounds, as well as the associated legal costs.
Gain More Clients
If your company is looking to work with large blue chip companies and the public sector, the chances are you’ll go through a tendering process.
Most tenders now have a section that will ask about your environmental policy and accreditations. Your environmental attitude as a business and your credentials could be the difference between your success and failure of winning that tender, due to the increasing desire of larger companies to gain favour through working with greener suppliers and contractors.
Protecting the environment protects your business
In addition to the devastating financial penalties of causing damage to the environment, it puts business owners at risk of being disqualified as a director and even at risk of imprisonment.
A common team purpose
Doing the right thing makes most people feel good, particularly when it will affect the future of those who have children. By caring about the environment as a business, you give your workforce a common goal and display a high moral code, which will increase employee loyalty.
