Business & the Environment

 * We hope you enjoy today's submitted article by Wayne Thompson:

Can Businesses Save The Environment?


Environmental issues cover an entire range of problems. Climate change, pollution, land degradation and ozone depletion all add up to the weakening of the natural world. The industrial revolution and the ever evolving modern globe have resulted in an uptake in the use of electricity. We use it every day and it would be difficult to live without it. Most of our daily needs and essentials require some form of energy to function. I would defy anyone to try and live without electricity for one day without struggling. It just goes to show that electricity is a necessity and whether we choose to like it or not we have to use it in one way or another.
In today's society almost everything is powered by electricity and fuel. Homes, cars and businesses all need some sort of energy to keep going. But what impact is this having on the environment? The use of too much electricity is beginning to ruin our natural surroundings and our environment is suffering, we are slowly running out of resources that provide us with the fuel we need. It may not appear as though there is a problem now, but in the future it may be a major environmental issue that the future generation will have to deal with. So what is the resolution to this problem? Well it starts with us. We all need to do our bit to save the world in which we live in.
There are many ways in which we can lower their carbon emissions and be greener. Just by making a few simple changes we can all help towards lowering our carbon footprint. You do not have to give up your essentials such as your car, home appliances or any of your conveniences to contribute towards a greener earth. Those who own homes, cars and businesses can still help towards saving the planet. Here are a few tips on how to reduce your carbon footprint.
• Recycle. Throwing rubbish away will result in more waste being dumped on land fill sites.
• Turn off lights and electrical appliances when they are not in use. You will save money and cause less fuel to be used.
• Car share. Sometimes only one car is needed for multiple people. This will allow less Co2 to be emitted.
• Try to walk if you can. Cars are notorious for polluting the atmosphere.
• Send emails rather than printing documents. Less paper, electricity and ink will be used.
Follow these tips and you are well on your way to creating a greener company. There are even courses available on how to save energy within a business and effectively deal with waste management at a business level so that the company is more responsible for the waste it produces. This can then be deal with in an environmentally friendly way to help preserve our world.
