Become an “eco- preneur” and practice eco-friendly business strategies

In today’s competitive corporate world, many businesses are looking for new strategies to gain clientele over one another. With the controversial condition of the current global climate, a company that promotes itself as “green” may be what separates them from the competition. A corporation that is socially and environmentally conscious can easily practice sustainable business strategies that will make a difference in the long run. 

One of the most effortless strategies to becoming an eco-friendly “eco- preneur” is becoming completely paperless. Believe it or not, this simple change will not only reduce waste and save a company time and money spent on paper, but will also save energy consumption, transportation costs, and our nation’s forests.

If it is not possible for a business to go completely paperless, waste management efforts can have an extreme impact as well. Reducing, recycling, and reusing are fundamental when it comes to waste management. We hear the “three R’s” all the time, but within a sustainable business practice, many e-mails or online research would not be printed out. Even using a fax machine, correspondences can now be sent and received electronically.

Another energy efficient solution for a business is replacing regular light bulbs with compact florescent bulbs, which are significantly energy-saving and lowering the costs of electricity bills.

With these few simple changes, a business can easily choose to practice sustainable strategies that will be advantageous to not only the environment but the corporation and it’s pocket book.
