Why Going Green Is Good For Montreal Business & How to Do It

Going Green is Today’s Normal 

Going green is far from a new idea. Increasing numbers of local businesses operate on standard green practices. Everything from the products they choose to produce or sell to the way they run their businesses are affected. And our society increasingly values and supports these practices. No longer is it advisable to ignore the continued demand for environmentally friendly products, services and methods – it could end up costing your business. While the current generation is comfortable with the idea of being green, those to come will demand it. Here are the top five benefits to your business for going green:

  • Energy efficiency saves money
  • Attract more customers
  • Reduce your reliance on supply chains
  • Boost customer loyalty and confidence in your business
  • Improve your brand image and reputation

Overhauling & Maintaining Your Green Status

If your business is less than environmentally friendly, it’s time to do something about it! Overhauling your business to be more earth-conscious can seem like a daunting task and it does take some investment initially. But it is very possible. Start with your operating values and see where you can implement positive steps, even if it will be incremental. Starting out small allows you to truly adjust your changes to fit your business without losing money or productivity. And it gets you moving in the right direction.

Remember the Small Things

Don’t overlook “small” things that can have an impact, such as green office supplies. Many companies are choosing to purchase green office supplies in place of less enviro-friendly options. Over the span of your business year, the impact from switching your office supplies to green choices is pretty big. Another great example is LED lighting. True, the bulbs cost more than the old incandescent bulbs, but they also last anywhere from 10 – 40 times longer, using only 10% of the energy the old bulbs used, on average. That’s a huge impact both on your power bill and energy efficiency.
