4 Ways A Green Office Leads To Green Profits
By now, the idea of going green in the business world is probably thought of as an overused cliché. However, you don’t have to live in Southern California and drive a Prius to reap the benefits of green business practices. In actuality, many of these business strategies save money in addition to lowering your company’s impact on the environment. Below are four examples you should seriously consider adopting. 

Go Paperless
One definite way to slash costs is to abandon printing. You should be aware that the average printing cost per employee in an office is $725 per year. If you have a lot of employees, that’s a lot of money. Thankfully, nearly everything you can do with paper documents can be replicated and even improved upon with digital files. There’s really no reason to continue using paper at all. 

Update Your Lighting
Lighting is something else that can save you money when you go green. Compared to traditional incandescent light bulbs, energy efficient lights can use anywhere from 25 to 80 percent less energy to provide the same amount of light. They also last a lot longer as well. This includes CFL, LED and halogen incandescent lighting. Upgrading to energy efficient lighting is one easy way to go green and save money at the same time. 

Update Your Plumbing
Similarly, energy efficient plumbing fixtures can save you a decent amount of money. They use less water to operate. Since you are likely using city water, they can certainly save money in the long run. Installing a solar water heater from companies like Clearwater Plumbing can also help to lower your reliance on other much more expensive heating options like a traditional furnace that uses either electricity or natural gas to heat a home. 

Obtain Energy Audits
Lastly, you should consider getting energy audits every year or every other year. This audit performed by a third party can tell you all the ways you are wasting energy and electricity in your office and the rest of your business as well. After making adjustments, you’ll have a much more efficient operation that wastes far less energy. Overhead such as your utility bills will shrink as a result. 

Overall, while going green may be a cliché, that doesn’t mean the trend is ever going away. Energy efficiency can do far more than help the environment. It’s also a cost cutting measure that increases efficiency and lowers overhead expense. Consider different ways your company can go green and save money at the same time.
