Whilst most businesses are aware of the environmental importance of going green, Liverpool Marketing Solutions suggests there are cost benefits for keeping an eye on a company’s carbon footprint.
A primary cost for most companies, including Liverpool Marketing Solutions, is paper and printing. By taking steps one can limit this usage, preserving both the environment and the company budget. “From observing better printing practices to taking the advantage of digital options there is no limit to the steps you can take,” says Christopher Haynes, Managing Director of Liverpool Marketing Solutions.
Setting a printers default to mono limits ink usage and reducing font decreases the amount of paper needed; both of these are simple enough to do and can easily become a daily habit. Whilst it is important to reduce paper output, inevitably it is a by-product of a business operation. As such, it is imperative to look at other options to cut costs such as energy conservation.
Managing Director of Liverpool Marketing Solutions, Christopher Haynes, was astounded to discover that turning equipment off when not in use saved his business 25% in energy costs. According to Management Today, this cost can be further reduced to 50% by simply turning computers off at the end of the day.
Christopher Haynes, of Liverpool Marketing Solutions, also explains how modern technology has helped conserve output; he explains how using digital copies instead of using the generic paper copies has decreased his paper usage, and creating electronic libraries makes for a more cost effective method of operation.
Liverpool Marketing Solutions implemented changes to decrease the company’s carbon footprint back in October 2011. The advantages they are recognising after such a short period of time should give many other businesses the encouragement they need to take steps towards ‘Going Green’. Saving power and recycling are two very simple changes almost any business could make today.
In this current economic climate, it is vital for all businesses to look towards new cost effective practices. If these can contribute to improving the environment, the benefits are doubled. Forward thinking businesses, such as Liverpool Marketing Solutions, are always on the lookout for the next cost saving plan.
