“Green” and “sustainable” have become two of the most widely used words in the English language. But what do they mean in terms of your business?
Going green means reducing the overall environmental impact of your business. That holistic approach includes compliance (Links to an external site.) issues that protect both you and the environment. When you combine those initiatives with energy efficiency (Links to an external site.) measures that conserve the earth’s resources, you make your business more efficient, and reduce costs.

John’s Gourmet Food Services is a wholesale produce retailer and dealing with natural products is the basis of the business. The management at John’s realizes that, that is why they work hard to keep the green image. Firstly and most importantly, the company has made green thinking a part of company’s future. The facility uses energy-efficient light bulbs, recycles, uses natural cleaning products and replaced the plastic water bottles glasses and cooler.
Besides that, the company follows that idea that providing a friendly, non-toxic environment is also a part of being green. Therefore, the office has its own kitchen where employees can eat healthier food. The company provides safe, creative environment for employees to do their work.
Looking at practices at John’s Gourmet Food Services, it seems like the company is already “green enough”. However, now the top management is introducing paperless receipt system. Delivery drivers will be able to take signatures on their tablets and they will be automatically sent to the accounting department. This will not only reduce the amount of paper printed for customers, but also will make the accounting department fully paperless. I believe that John’s is on the right track when it comes to saving the environment.
As indicated by the Environmental Protection Agency there is little uncertainty that natural issues will modify the administrative and market scene soon. energy-effective organizations will be better ready to explore these administrative changes and be better situated to climate negative occasions like energy value spikes. Likewise, shoppers are rushing to safe, non-dangerous, green items. Individuals are winding up increasingly aware of their decisions and are happy to put more in an item to take an interest in this development and to secure their family.
That by itself ought to be sufficient inspiration. In any case, consider additionally that a considerable lot of the world’s top associations are putting billions of dollars into ecological supportability programs- – a decent sign that entrepreneurs ought to stick to this same pattern.
Going Green can be very beneficial to businesses. When a company decides to go green it means that the company is making a concerted effort to reduce its negative impact on the environment. This can be done by reducing utility costs, recycling and reusing procedural programs, and by buying green products and services. By going green company can potentially reduce its expenses, gain customers and boost employee morale (Lorette, 2017). Unfortunately, form what I know the company where I am doing my internship is no doing anything regarding “going green.”
Something that can be recommended to the company to help the environment is going paperless. In order for companies to contribute to the environment, they should use less paper and keep the files or any other documentation digital as possible. One way in which companies can reduce the waste of paper is by switching from a fax machine to fax modem in order to be able to send and receive paperless files. In order to reduce the use of paper the company can also electronic forms and email documents that need to be read (Al-Masri, 2015). According to a 2014 conducted study, if a company reduces its paper use by 10% by moving to digital “it would reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 1.45 million metric tons—the equivalent to taking 280,000 cars off the road for an entire year” (Rayome, 2017). Another recommendation will be to maximize natural light. Studies have proved that natural daylight improves workers’ productivity and satisfaction. Employees should also be encouraged to bring small plants to the office because they are natural air filters. They can also try to conserve energy by putting the computer in sleep mode is not in use (Al-Masri, 2015).
Going green is such a hot topic in today’s day because it is an issue in which many people are passionate about. This has led to a great number of businesses to make an effort to go green as well. Going green is a hot topic because by practicing we can reduce air pollution which can potentially have serious consequences on the environment and people’s health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), air pollution has led to the premature death of 3 million people. Pollution does not only affects our health but it also affects wildlife. Massachusetts’ Department of Environmental Protection states that “ Decreasing air pollutants would reduce water pollution by decreasing acid rain and eutrophication that can harm wildlife especially in aquatic environments, and crops and trees” (Kinhal, n.d.). Overall, going green is such a hot topic in today’s day because we are at the point in which due to a lot of the various environmental issues every body’s life is under the threat of extinction.
