One growing topic in business at the minute is the environment. Many things have contributed to the climate change that we have created today. One of the biggest contributors is the business world. We have created harmful gasses for more years than we care to count, and it has only been in recent years that strict rules and regulations have now come into place. Not only that, but there is more of a pressure to be eco-friendly from customers around the world. So, we’re going to show you how you can work towards being more eco-friendly, and what the pressure is going to mean for your business.
The Impact the Pressure Has
The pressure can have a lot of impact on the way your business is ran. For the most part, the scrutiny and pressure is now coming from the public eye. There is so much media attention around trying to restore the world, reduce plastic, and save our forests. Trees have long been cut down for commercial use, even simply down to using trees to make paper. Asia Pulp and Paper landscape conservation is just one of the campaigns that’s protecting a million hectares of natural habitat in Indonesia, acres that once would have been used to benefit all sorts of business. If a business is seen to be damaging the environment in any way, especially cutting down forests and using plastic, the public are now more inclined to stay well clear of them.

We know that although the efforts of some businesses has been huge, there are still steps that some businesses need to take to reduce their plastic, especially plastic packaging that’s thrown before it reaches the consumer. Plastic wrapping is accounting for a large proportion of the plastic that businesses use, but is often forgotten about. You could also reduce your emissions if you have a fleet. Using low emission vans, and even using petrol where you can.
