In the face of climate change, many companies are trying to implement global change1. The world’s leading companies claim to be hyper-focused on sustainability, but companies are often not aware of their operations’ comprehensive environmental impact – and therefore cannot set appropriate sustainability targets. Many businesses have no way of measuring their carbon footprint, and there are so many studies out there that it can be difficult to discern which ones are the most accurate. This leaves many with the lingering question:
How can businesses reduce their carbon footprint without spending a fortune on solar panels or electric cars?
Here are 4 popular ways that companies are ensuring their carbon footprint remains as low as possible:
1. Work From Home
Although the pandemic may have initially been the reason for working from home, it ended up being an incredible way to reduce emissions. Minimizing transportation to and from the office is an immediate way to decrease carbon footprints.
2. Efficient Energy
Even for companies that work in-office, there are still ways they minimize their carbon footprint! One of the easiest answers lies in minimization and awareness. For instance, when employees are not in their offices, they can turn off all the lights in offices that aren’t being occupied. Or, at the end of the day, switching off all the computers and workplace technology makes a large difference.
3. Smart Shipping2
Due to the rising cost and emissions that come with international shipping, many businesses are switching to local shipping. Companies are changing their supplies to local whenever possible, which naturally reduces pollution and cost.
