Top 5 Ecofriendly Business Ideas For The New Tax Year

If you want to make your company more eco-friendly in the new tax year, it can be difficult to know where to start. However, the benefits of being an eco-friendly business often include saving money as well as promoting a more positive public image. With more and more firms striving to be eco-friendly, it is something every business needs to think about to avoid being left behind. One of the biggest areas of waste for businesses comes in packaging. If packaging, from product boxes to cellophane wrap, is part of your business, then you could potentially be wasting money and unnecessarily harming the environment. Reassess how much packaging you use to send products out, and consider new packaging designs that require less material. Additionally, you can use recyclable and biodegradable materials as the basis of your packaging, which will reduce the burden on the landfill when it is thrown away. Energy bills are another one of the biggest outgoings for any business, and yet there is so much help at hand for companies wishing to reduce their gas/electricity use. Most energy companies offer a free consultation to help you cut your usage, which will not only save the environment, but will save you money on energy bills. Also, by passing some of these savings onto your employees, you will encourage everyone in your business to maintain energy-saving habits. Water bottles are a staple of most offices, and yet they waste both plastic and water. Installing a water cooler will help reduce the environmental impact of your firm. However, encouraging staff to drink tap water will be even better, helping reduce unnecessary costs and improving the overall environmental performance of your business. During the darkest winter months, energy usage is increased and staff morale is often at an all-time low. During these months, why not shift your business hours a little later to save energy as well as make your staff happier? Running your business hours from 10-6 will mean that your staff can commute post-rush hour, and you will not need to heat/light your building in the dark, cold hours of very early morning. Better yet, allowing employees to work remotely on a part-time basis could greatly reduce the amount of energy needed to run the office. Paper waste within an office is another big area in which firms lose their environmental credentials. Although it can seem like paper waste is an impossible battle to fight, using sophisticated technology can help. For example, rather than submitting paper invoices, use invoice capture software as a replacement. This will prevent paper wastage and will perhaps even increase efficiency within your business. Once your clients get used to this digital format, the paperless system will help boost your company's reputation as an eco-friendly business.
