Whether you’re planning to start a new business or have one up and running already, make it eco-friendly. Not only are sustainable businesses 2.5 times more successful than non-sustainable ones, but the government is slowly tightening the screws on the latter. By making the shift to eco-friendliness now, you can get a head start and avoid playing catch-up later.

In this resource guide, Second Plumbing and Heating explains how to go green with your business.

Educate Yourself on Key Eco-Friendliness Metrics

Eco-friendliness metrics are indicators of your environmental impact – net negative, neutral, or positive. When you know where you’re falling short, you can make improvements.

Research Methods to be More Eco-Friendly

Plenty of businesses have gone green already. By researching trends, you can gain some much-needed inspiration. Some examples:

Make Your Business Eco-Friendly
  • If you’re launching a new business, create a business plan and include your eco-friendly goals.

  • Inform yourself about the environmental laws applicable to small businesses.

  • Sustainability isn’t free. Come up with an eco-budget, and measure the ROI on your initiatives.

  • Market your eco-friendly nature. It’s how you will acquire buy-in from present and future stakeholders.

Take Steps to Care for Our Planet
