There’s a common misconception in the business world that taking an eco-sustainability position in the marketplace means reduced profits.

At Indigo we know this simply isn’t true, and that building sustainablity into our business will actually means greater profitability.

The idea that green practices can be cost-effective may have you confused, and if you’re unsure about that, you are not alone.

So here are the facts…

Companies that build sustainability into their core strategies are outperforming those who fail to show climate change leadership.

Companies that are actively managing and planning for climate change secure an 18% higher return on investment than companies that are not.

Companies investing in carbon reductions achieved a 50% lower volatility of earnings over the past decade and 21% stronger dividends than their lower-ranking peers.

Further to this, many corporate bodies, and government departments take sustainability into consideration when awarding contracts.

These facts are based on findings by the non-profit CDP, which provided some of the first evidence of a link between business leadership on climate change and a company’s profitability.

Running An Environmentally Friendly Business

Running carbon neutral business helps you reduce your impact on the environment and preserves natural resources that are depleting quickly. Here are some examples of steps you could take TODAY to make your business more environmentally friendly:

  • Ensure staff work remotely wherever possible
  • Purchase power from suppliers who utilise 100% renewable sources.
  • Utilise hosting solutions that mitigate the environmental cost of running servers
  • Remove tailpipe travel emissions by arranging video calls instead of face-to-face meetings
  • Replace your incandescent or fluorescent systems with LED and solar lighting
  • Reduce your reliance on natural resources by installing rainwater tanks, smart water systems and solar hot water systems
  • Use products that are made from recycled materials, and always ‘think green’ when buying or replacing items
  • Perform an audit to gain detailed information about infrastructure and appliances
  • Recycle outdated appliances with high efficiency counterparts
  • Go paperless where possible, and store your data on a fully secure cloud platform.
  • Encourage staff to carpool, use battery electric vehicles, use public transportation or ride bikes to work
  • Use biodegradable cleaners that do not harsh toxins and other chemicals

Steps like these are simple, fast and effective, and can they cut thousands of pounds from your bills. These measures will support your sustainability credentials, and make you more attractive to eco-conscious clients.

For example with Indigo, remote working makes a big difference to not only the money we spend, but on the way we feel about our impact on this planet.

So you see, profitability can come from going green.
