Our vendors can support your customer's green initiatives and help them meet their sustainability targets.

Did you know 53.6 million metric tonnes of electronic waste were generated worldwide in 2019? As the world moves towards hybrid working, it’s easy to assume we are becoming more sustainable, but there are many elements of a business that can be improved. The impact we have on the environment doesn’t solely come from inside offices, it’s impacted by the commute, leaving technology turned on unnecessarily, not recycling correctly, and more. These actions can happen at the office and at home, so how can you encourage your customers to become more sustainable?

How has sustainability impacted businesses?

For a long time, businesses have mainly focused on profit and reputation, but now they are looking for ways to make their business more sustainable. Among the many reasons why, is the younger workforce understands why sustainability is such an important topic and focus in their lives, the result of this being they won’t work for companies who are not looking to improve. Not only this, but investors now take into consideration what impact businesses have, to ensure there is not only economic profit, but also a positive social impact, focusing on health, safety and wellness.

In addition, businesses can save money by making conscious decisions. Even the smallest change to your customers’ working day can bring long-term benefits, such as turning off equipment that isn’t being used, reducing plastic consumption, and cutting down on commutes to help reduce emissions. Further, businesses should encourage their employees to follow suit at home. Switching to clean energy, reducing plastic waste. It is important that the actions the company are taking to become more sustainable are transparent.

Sustainability Hints and Tips

We know it can seem overwhelming when you research how you can become more sustainable, so we’ve put together some hints and tips for your customers and their team.

Each commute to the office releases emissions. Why not look into car-sharing, use public transportation, or introduce hybrid working?

When the office is open, your customers will likely have coffee machines, fridges, air conditioning/heating switched on. But is this needed if there is only a small team in the office? Turning these off, even just for certain areas of the office, or asking the team to work remotely saves your customers money and helps the planet.

When individuals are working from home, instead of turning on or up the heating, they can put on an extra layer of clothing.

Reduce plastic consumption in the office and at home! Milkmen are making a comeback, so why not change supplier? Do you have lunch shops that don’t use plastic packaging close to the office? Encourage employees to go there rather than buying another meal deal at the next supermarket.

We’re all guilty of it, but if you’re not using something, turn it off. Whether this is lights, a computer, or a printer.

Do you have old devices you no longer use? Instead of throwing them away, donate or reuse them once they’ve been through data sanitisation.

Switch to renewable energy. Renewable energy tariffs are becoming more competitive and can sometimes even be cheaper. Check out price comparison sites to find the best option for you.
