Environmentally Aware Organisations, Make Your Business Carbon Neutral

Becoming an Eco-Friendly Organisation

The nature and size of your business will determine how much you need to do in order to become eco-friendly or even carbon neutral.

If your organisation entails emitting harmful chemicals into the atmosphere, you will need to do a lot more than the organisation that isn't recycling enough waste paper.

Small Organisations

Smaller business' can become carbon neutral by taking a few simple steps which mainly revolve around the way in which waste is dealt with and the sources of energy used.

Business' that function from an office will often have little waste and a small enough team of staff to make aware of the changes that they can make to make their organisation a bit greener.

Organisations that are very technology heavy can reduce the amount of electricity they are using by switching off all computers and electronics at the end of the day rather than leaving them on standby in the background. Business' that are very paper heavy can put in place appropriate recycling bins in order to reduce the amount of waste paper that ends up in landfill.

Large Organisations

Larger business' will find it harder to become carbon neutral as they will have more locations and quantities of staff to manage and follow environmentally aware procedures.

A trend that is growing and being adopted by many large organisations is a change in the source of energy that they are using. Those that work from properties that are not in city centres can have a number of specialist equipments installed so that they can generate their own source of renewable electricity.

Another way that larger business' can get closer to becoming carbon neutral is to use less heating. If you operate out of an office that has a high number of people in it, the temperature setting will often be too high. By turning down the thermostat just a few degrees, a huge difference can be made and little change to the temperature will be noticed.
