What Is A Carbon Footprint?
A company’s carbon footprint is based on the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere generated by the business’s actions. These actions may contribute to air pollution, climate change and acid rain. This is why it’s so important to monitor and actively reduce your company’s footprint.
Recycling & The Use Of Recycled Resources
One of the most effective ways to improve your company’s carbon footprint involves recycling and reusing waste. Recycling reduces the number of raw materials being sourced and manufactured to create packaging and other plastic-based products. Plastics aren’t the only material that can be recycled, metals, paper and glass can also be reused through effective recycling, serving a new purpose. Recycling is an attractive proposition to like-minded potential customers or clients, who also care greatly about the environment and greenhouse gas emissions.
Changing Company Vehicle Policies
The UK is planning to ban petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030. With that in mind, swapping your current company cars to hybrid or electric ones will help reduce your company’s carbon footprint. It’s estimated that nearly 40 million tonnes of CO2 is produced from vehicles in the UK alone! Switching to electricity will help your employees save money on fuel and their carbon footprints. Globally, car manufacturers are investing in electric vehicle lines to reduce emissions and prepare for the future market.
Investing In Green Energy Equipment
Investing in green energy and office equipment will also help you save money and the planet. Swapping your energy provider with a solar panel is a great alternative if your company has a cash reserve. Other options include the addition of automatic LED lighting. Filament bulbs consume large amounts of electricity in comparison to LEDs. Automatic LEDs are a great alternative as they use less energy, provide greater illumination and can be colour changeable. Automatic LEDs remove the need for light switches, removing the chance of lights being left on throughout the day or the night. Reducing the thermostat temperature in your office by 1 degree could reduce the heating energy by 13%!
