Going Green: Benefits for Businesses

Published on November 17, 2021

Running a green organisation drastically reduces your impact on the environment but it has other advantages too. Here are just a couple of ways that you make a change and reap the rewards.

Reduced Production Costs

Savings are a natural byproduct of eco-friendly company practices. Energy conservation, recycling, water-saving devices, energy-efficient equipment, solar power, and decreased waste are all cost-effective and efficient alternatives to conventional energy consumption. Have you analysed your supplier chain and reviewed the environmental impact of businesses you work with? You’ll save resources and related expenses by lowering your energy use, which will increase the overall efficiency of your company operations. 

Increase Your Client Base

The environment is important to the public and impacts consumer choices. Research shows that “green” organisations are increasing their client base and customers are prepared to pay extra if it means obtaining environmentally friendly goods or services. A genuine approach to sustainability will improve your reputation and resonate with your network.

Healthier Workplace

Bring greenery into the workplace and swap unhealthy shared snacks for nourishing choices. Plants will clear the air and introduce a creative atmosphere to the workplace. Utilising eco-friendly cleaning products is also an easy way to make your office a healthy place to work.

Productivity Among Employees 

Employees are increasingly opting to work for organisations that are actively reducing their carbon footprint. They may have a more beneficial influence on the environment by working for companies that are making strides toward sustainability. Introduce a bike rack, organise a car-pooling system and encourage your team to bring in reusable containers and keep cups for any takeaways they may buy.

It’s never looked so good to be green! Your organisation can attract and retain employees, build a larger and more dedicated client base, and motivate staff to be more productive all whilst saving our planet. Most importantly, being sustainable and environmentally responsible allows you to offer your community more than simply a product or service. You have the ability to provide them a long-term future.

Lawson Delaney would like to show leadership on an individual and company level in support of the global pursuit for a greener, more resilient future for us all. Be part of the solution and make a change. To discuss any of these topics further, please contact us on 03 9946 7300 or support@lawsondelaney.com.au.
