The focus for many companies in the last couple of years has been energy efficiency. Some of the biggest corporations have launched go green campaigns that promote practices branching from paperless e-billing to paperless statements. These campaigns have proven effective in not only improving customer perception of the companies, but also improving customer experience. Technology now allows you to trace unnecessary energy use and modify or eliminate this use. Energy reduction is frequently measured as a relative amount of energy use to revenue, energy use per product shipped or energy use per square foot of facility space. Energy reduction goals can also be measured by the total amount of energy consumed. While initially this seems like a tedious task, energy reduction can ultimately benefit your company in various ways.
Energy reduction results in a reduction of the overhead costs.
Regardless of the type of company you own or manage there is no denying the fact that energy is a recurring expense in one way or another. This recurring expense, for some companies, is fixed or believed to be fixed. A reduction of energy, either through the implementation of efficient alternatives or a reduction in consumption, will reduce the total expense you incur to run your business.
Portrays that your company is conscious of its carbon footprint
The allure of the go green campaigns for many companies, besides the cost effectiveness, is the support that communities provide for companies that express their intent to reduce their carbon footprint. Customers generally feel more comfortable supporting corporations that have eco friendly practices. Companies that express and practice an ethical responsibility to the environment are generally well received.
You are able to allocate the additional funds towards improvements elsewhere
A reduction in your company’s recurring energy expense will provide you with additional capital to expand or start a new project for your company. These additional funds can help you purchase new equipment, open another branch, or even go towards an improved employee experience.
