Tips For An Eco-Friendly Facility

These 10 Things Will Kill Your Business Venture If You’re Not Careful!

Improving the sustainability of your facility can create significant energy savings, a more pleasant experience for customers, and a healthier environment for employees. It can also make you stand out from competitors when it comes to attracting environmentally conscious customers. As a business owner or facility manager, you have the choice to make impactful decisions for your building and occupants on a daily basis.

Here are several ways to make a facility more environmentally friendly:

Conserve energy and lower electricity costs by simply taking advantage of natural lighting. By opening blinds on windows or installing skylights, you can bring in natural, internal lighting and warm up a space.This practice is called daylighting, which uses a combination of building designs and technologies to reduce a facility’s dependence on electric lighting. Daylighting also helps create a visually stimulating and productive environment for staff members.

Another easy way to see green results in a facility is by choosing eco-friendly cleaning alternatives. Not only do these cleansers offer the same cleaning power as conventional products, they provide a safer working environment for your team. Green cleansers are often biodegradable and don’t introduce toxins or irritants into the ecosystem. Consider green cleaning products that meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safer Choice standard.

U.S. businesses spend about $8 billion each year managing paper. Moreover, printing numerous paper documents contributes to deforestation and depletion of other precious resources. Going paperless and adopting digital file management helps to curb your business’s carbon footprint. Other ways to go paperless include using email for correspondence, asking vendors to offer invoices instead of paper documents, and storing documents on the cloud.

There are dozens of innovative practices that boast sustainable outcomes. For more easy ways to start going green in your facility, take a look at the accompanying guide.
