Why Practice Sustainable Solutions?
In today’s environmentally conscious climate, it is crucial for one's firm to encourage the practice of sustainable business decisions. Not only will your company be contributing to sustainability efforts, but there are other benefits as well. In a study that surveyed more than 53,000 U.S. consumers, the Natural Marketing Institute discovered that 58 percent of consumers consider a company’s impact on the environment when making buying choices and are more likely to purchase from companies that practice sustainable habits.
That carries over to a market composed of approximately 68 million Americans who favor firms that possess positive track records in personal, social, and environmental values. The National Marketing Institute also discovered that these 68 million Americans are willing to spend up to 20% more on a product if they trust that it came from an environmentally sound and sustainable firm. That’s a major market, and that’s only one of the major benefits that come along with implementing sustainable practices.
Some argue that the implementation of such sustainable practices are rather expensive. The reality, however, is the opposite. Efficient operation is a key component in the development and implementation of sustainable business practices. Streamlining your workflow and conserving resources while empowering employees to be more productive are all crucial parts of sustainable business, but they also lower your costs. Some examples of simple low-cost sustainability strategies can be as simple as turning off unnecessary lights and insulating walls, while more sophisticated efforts include installing geothermal heating and cooling systems. More elaborate solutions require more initial capital to implement but produce big savings in the long run.
