There has been a bigger push in the last decade for companies to become more environmentally conscious with their operations.
There is growing evidence that the human impact on the environment is really taking a toll on the world, and individuals, as well as organizations, are asking companies to do their part to reduce that impact.
It’s one of the reasons that many industrial sites are searching for more environmentally friendly corrosion protection from Enviropeel. But this move to be more environmentally conscious isn’t just good for the environment, it’s actually good for the bottom line, too.
How Businesses Benefit from Being Environmentally Friendly
- It can reduce your costs. There is a common misconception that going green has to cost a lot of money. In many cases, it’s the opposite. Many environmentally friendly products cost the same or even less than their more-harmful counterparts. But, the long term impact is usually where you’ll see the most savings. Many green products are more sustainable, meaning they won’t require as many natural resources to create and what they do use, they replace. Additionally, green measures can cut down on a company’s waste and increase the amount of product they can reuse, cutting down on operating costs. That’s not all, though; it can also reduce the expenses associated with worker’s compensation claims as well as fines from organizations like the Environmental Protection Agency.
- It is great for public relations. People want the companies that they work for and support with their business to be environmentally friendly. Showing potential clients and customers that your business is doing everything that you can to help protect the environment through sustainable measures can bring in more business and make the clients that you already have even more loyal. Your customer retention can go up as people are committed to the same environmental causes that your company is passionate about, too. Building good will with the local community in which you operate it a big positive, too; it could even result in tax breaks and other incentives while you work in the area.
- It makes the workplace safer and healthier. If the products and practices that your company employs on the job site aren’t friendly to the environment, then there is probably a good chance they aren’t that friendly to your workers, either. Many environmentally friendly products help cut down on the number of hazardous and harmful chemicals that are used on the job site, meaning workers benefit from less exposure to those agents as well. That reduces a company’s liability in case of an accident or injury as well as cuts down on expensive worker’s compensation claims. Workers who know they are safe are going to be more productive, too. That means you’ll be able to get more done without worrying about increased labor costs.
- It could provide tax credits. There are a number of local, state, and federal programs that provide tax credits to businesses who are using environmentally friendly methods on their job sites. These tax credits can equal huge savings to your business. Federal tax credits can be claimed for doing things like using hybrid vehicles on the job site or switching your business to solar power. Tax credits can potentially save your company millions every year, which makes going green suddenly look like a very profitable investment. It could be a big return on the initial costs to do so.
- It could prevent fines. Of course, not all businesses go green willingly. Some are forced to when federal agencies discover that they are utilizing environmentally unsafe practices. This kind of discovery can lead to huge fines that will directly impact your bottom line, not to mention create a potential public relations firestorm. Avoiding those fines (not to mention the PR crisis) can help your business stay ahead competitively as well as keep your investors happy.
