Fast Track your Company’s Eco-Consciousness this Earth Day

by | Apr 20, 2017 | Start Ups

The soaring temperature, melting ice caps and the extreme climate change is compelling businesses, governments all over the world, non-profit organizations and other big & small organizations to join hands to find sustainable solutions that can successfully overturn the damage rendered to Mother Nature.


Today, there is a spike in awareness among citizens with many taking prolific steps to ‘go-green’ by making small yet significant lifestyle changes such as – utilizing reusable grocery bags, travel mugs and more. At the same time, organizations must also elevate their in-house environmental policies by undertaking smart practices that will not only save money but also save the environment, in the long run.

Therefore, to commemorate the 47th year of celebrating the Earth Day on April 22, 2017, we present 5 ways by which you can effortlessly go-green and fast track eco-consciousness of your organization.

  1. Use CFL and LED lights

Switching to energy efficient light bulbs is one of the first steps any organization can take towards becoming eco-conscious. Incandescent light bulbs utilize a large amount of energy and they must be effectively phased outdoors. For indoor purposes, energy-efficient alternatives such as CFL and LED lights can be utilized. Replacing one 75-watt incandescent bulb with a 25-watt CFL can save up to $83 over the life of the bulb.

  1. Go Paperless

In today’s modern era of computerisation and digitalisation, enterprises must take directed measures to reduce the day-to-day use of paper. This can be easily and effectively achieved by taking active steps to transition into a paperless office:

  • Post manuals and essential documentation in CRM software, rather than distributing print copies
  • Review documents on computer, instead of printing them to make edits
  • Use fax modem to replace traditional fax machines so that all faxes can be sent via e-mail, etc.
  1. Become Energy Efficient

Although, the installation of solar panels and utilization of alternative energy resources is the best possible solution to establish an eco-conscious company, it may not be practical or feasible to do it all at once.

How about initiating small yet significant measures like starting with roof-top solar installations to see how it goes in the first place?

  1. Recycle

One of the best available means of fast-tracking any company’s eco-consciousness is to actively find ways to recycle daily use products. To effectively manage waste, organizations should install designated bins in frequently accessed, high traffic office areas. Such active and focused measures will ensure that recyclable items are judiciously used and properly disposed.

  1. Host E-waste Drives

E-waste like dead batteries, smart phones, printer toners and even light bulbs is a dangerous material to dispose off irresponsibly due to the presence of heavy toxic materials in them such as mercury and lead. So, let’s host frequent electronic waste drives in organizations and encourage appropriate disposal of such electronics, chemicals, and other radioactive matter.
