Building a Green Business: Reduce Your Company’s Carbon Footprint

Posted by Dalkia Solutions on Feb 11, 2022 2:31:41 PM

Climate change can disrupt all aspects of human life, contributing to rising sea levels, hotter days and severe weather that can negatively impact food production, among other consequences. While it may feel like this global crisis is only getting worse, businesses are in a unique position to lead the charge in mitigating the effects. That’s why it’s important for your business to consider forward-thinking sustainability initiatives that will help reduce your company’s carbon footprint. But you don’t have to do it alone—Dalkia Energy Solutions can be your partner in implementing projects at your facility that help the environment and make your facility more energy efficient.

The Benefits of Focusing on Sustainability

Focusing on sustainability can help a business reduce its negative impact on the environment at large while also providing benefits to the company itself—such as through a boost to its overall reputation or a reduction of costs.

In fact, a 2020 study by Deloitte showed that 65% of consumers expect business leaders to take action and make progress on issues involving sustainability, including reducing carbon emissions. Some respondents say they are even changing their consumption habits based on their views on the environment. Businesses that embrace their responsibility to the environment may see greater interest from those who share similar values, whether they are customers or employees.

Putting a spotlight on sustainability can also positively impact a business as it can help reduce overall costs. Implementing energy-saving projects such as LED lighting, improvements to HVAC and refrigeration systems and on-site energy generation can lead to savings in utility costs that impact your company’s bottom line.
