Cut your business costs with a Green Team

May 13, 2016
It’s reported that on average, offices waste £6,000 per annum* by leaving electrical equipment on standby. This, combined with unnecessary travel, waste disposal, water use and procurement, means that the true cost to a business operating unsustainably, is likely to be substantially more.



Steve Malkin, CEO of Planet First, provider of sustainability certification The Planet Mark , believes that the key to cutting unnecessary costs is for every business, big and small, to establish a ‘Green Team’.   

Steve Malkin said: “Engaging a core team of people within the business to focus on green initiatives has been proven to save businesses money whilst simultaneously improving sustainability awareness, essential to positive business growth in today’s world.”  

“What’s more, employees today are increasingly drawn to environmentally conscious businesses so, in this time of high employment, having a Green Team in place, makes your company much more attractive to them.  Often companies think they have to employ specialists to do this but recruiting from within can be easily managed and most frequently brings forth the best results.”
