Reducing the amount of waste resulting from your business and becoming more sustainable will save you money and will also enhance your reputation.

Recycle

Go paperless. Much business waste is paper and can be significantly reduced. Dispose of items separately to increase recyling such as food waste and plastic recycling.

Be energy efficient

Look at new technology to make your business consume less energy and be more sustainable.

Reduce travel

Encourage your employees to walk to work, work form home or car pool.

Use sustainable, eco-friendly suppliers

Make sure your business and those you work with are as sustainable as possible.
