“Going green” is much more than a trendy slogan. By switching to environment-friendly technologies and processes, companies can save a lot of money, reduce their carbon footprint and reap a lot of other benefits. In addition, protecting the environment is increasingly important to the general public, which means that going green will help attract and retain customers and employees.
In a world that is increasingly environmentally conscious, consumers want to spend their hard-earned money on products that will not harm the planet and are made by companies that are doing their part. In many cases, the return on investment of environment-friendly technology is excellent. While the initial purchase price may be higher, this equipment will quickly pay for itself through energy savings, visible on the electricity bill.
On a very small scale, think of traditional lightbulbs and the more expensive LED lights. Sure, the latter is more expensive but they outlast their predecessors by years and consume much less energy. The same is true for many other green investments – on a much larger scale.
Going green has many benefits apart from the return on investment (ROI).
1. Energy savings are a major economic benefit. In the case of an air compressor, for example, electricity costs make up 80% of the total cost of ownership. As a result, an energy-efficient model will quickly pay for itself.
2. Tax credits and other benefits: Many governments now offer tax credits and other benefits for purchasing environment-friendly technology.
3. Tighter government emission standards: Hoping to meet their climate change goals, governments are increasingly putting in place regulations to reduce pollution and promote efficiency.
As a result, companies purchasing outdated equipmentnow may soon find themselves on the wrong side of tighter emission standards.
4. Going green is the right thing to do: The overwhelming majority of scientists, and study after study, tell us that the planet is warming at a rate that will radically change how humans live on it. In fact, natural disasters like droughts, wildfires, floods, and storms are already gaining in strength.
5. Attracting customers and building brand loyalty: Research and polling have shown that customers increasingly value companies that help protect the environment. In the age of social media, this is especially important. Businesses do not want to be branded as polluters or as dragging their feet on switching to green technologies. Always keep in mind that nobody has been boycotted yet for consuming too little energy or being too green.
6. Becoming an attractive employer: Your green investments could also end up being an investment in the next generation of skilled employees. Young people are especially concerned about the environment. That makes sense because, unless drastic actions are taken, they will feel the negative consequences that will be the result of a changing climate.
7. Increasing job satisfaction: Your commitment to “going green” – from using recycled products to planting trees, from subsidizing public transportation to making green investments – will increase the job satisfaction of environment- conscious employees and help to retain best workers.
8. Going green means improved occupational safety and health: for example by providing cleaner air at work. That, in turn, means fewer sick days and a healthier, more energetic staff. Accordingly, from direct financial benefits to marketing considerations and staff recruitment and retention, green investment is not just a smart investment in the present but also in the future.
