What is a green business showcase anyway?….
We live in a world, were everything is disposable and nothing is sacred. Waste and litter, land fills and scrap heaps, but why is it like this when it really doesn’t have to be, and why do so many think this planet has an unlimited amount of resources that will never run dry? Is it a lack of caring, or is it just a lack of understanding.
Amazingly, we can make major changes with a few simple tweaks that will have such a big impact. Changes that don’t cost as much as you might think, were as the alternative literally costs the earth.
Despite our lack of blogging on greener issues, the UK has the potential to lead the way with a few more changes, we are currently in the top 5 countries for Green Energy. Europe is currently the greenest continent.
Now here are the top 10 Greenest Countries, some of which I am sure you will be surprised to see….
- Number 10 – Columbia
- Number 9 – Cuba
- Number 8 – Austria
- Number 7 – France
- Number 6 – Mauritius
- Number 5 – Norway
- Number 4 – Sweden
- Number 3 – Costa Rica
- Number 2 – Iceland
- Number 1 – Switzerland
“Your business is probably greener than you think”….
Being green can mean a number of things, the most popular things that spring to mind when people talk about being green are Green Energy, Environmental, Low Carbon and Health and Safety. But in actual fact you could be a lot greener than you think, and more and more businesses will only deal with companies who have good green credentials.
Here are some other ways you too might be greener
- Greener IT Systems (using greener energy saving components)
- Car sharing or Battery operated cars
- Giving to Charities and a fantastic CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility)
- Health and Well being for you and your staffing
- Home Grown
