Green Guide for Small Business


Blair Kingsland, Senior Consultant of Spectrum Innovation Group wrote Green Guide for Small Business in Industry Week.

According to him, “Going green” means becoming more environmentally conscious. It is part of adopting sustainable business practices that balance the conflicting goals of economic performance, environmental stewardship and social responsibility. The main theme of sustainability is “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

Most small companies have neither the need nor the resources to develop a comprehensive sustainability program. But there is much they can do to improve their environmental performance for the benefit of their business and customers.

By following green principles and practices, a company can reduce its costs (particularly energy expenditures), develop new markets and enhance its reputation.

Why not include this in our small business goals? Well guys, read more on Green Guide for Small Business at Industry Week for more details of this endeavor.
