5 Tips for a sustainable business

Sustainability is a topic that is receiving more and more attention. The news regularly covers climate change. According to the majority of scientists, this climate change is mainly caused by humans. The burning of fossil fuels causes a lot of CO2 in the air. This causes global warming. Many companies are aware of this and are already engaged in 'sustainable entrepreneurship'. How can you contribute to a better environment with your company? In this blog we give you 5 tips to make your company more sustainable. 


Tip 1: Separate waste

The first tip for a sustainable business is to separate waste. Put several waste bins in place with a clear description of what can be put in. Separating waste means that more can be recycled and less residual waste is incinerated. This reduces CO2 emissions and this will have a positive effect on the environment.

Tip 2: Provide suitable packaging material

Many companies use standard packaging material for different products. As a result, this packaging material is often far too spacious. Fewer packages can be transported at the same time. This is of course very bad for the environment. Also larger quantities of paper and plastic are used. It is therefore important to use suitable packaging material. In addition to the positive effects on the climate, it also results in lower costs because more packages can be transported at the same time. 

Tip 3: Switch to LED lighting

An important step towards a more sustainable business is the switch to LED lighting. This can save a lot of energy. LED lighting consumes much less power than traditional lighting, such as incandescent and halogen lamps. If you have 10 incandescent lamps, this would result in CO2 emissions of 456 KG per year. If you replace these lamps with LED, this would only result in a CO2 emission of 45 KG per year. So the difference is very large, especially if you are going to replace a large number of lamps. Of course, this is often the case in a company. In addition to the positive effect on the environment, a lot of money can also be saved. Purchasing LED is an investment, but due to the low energy consumption this is very quickly recouped and therefore you only save money. Would you like more information on why LED lighting is sustainable? Then read the blog below.

Tip 4: Make sure lighting and heating are switched off when not in use.

LED lighting consumes far less power than traditional lighting, yet it is a waste if the lighting is on when it is not in use. Therefore, use a sensor for the lighting. If no movement is detected, the lighting switches off. Please note that this sensor is not set too tightly. This can be very annoying for employees. However, do not set the time too far, as this will only save a small amount of energy. In addition, savings can also be made by not switching on the heating unnecessarily. Always make sure that it is switched off when no one is present.

Tip 5: Solar panels

By using solar panels you can generate your own energy for your company. A solar panel converts solar energy into electricity. Within 2 to 3 years, a panel has saved more CO-2 emissions than it cost to make the panel. After this period it only has a positive effect on the environment.
