Sustainability means a lot of different things to many different people, it includes broad areas like community engagement, CSR, landscapes and heritage, etc. For us, at the Fifty Shades Greener office, environmental sustainability in business means to reduce your business impact to the environment, and there are 3 clear pillars of sustainability to work on: waste, water and energy.
In order to run an environmentally friendly business, you need to reduce your business utilities, and the best part of this journey is that not only you will reduce your business Carbon Footprint and impact to the environment, but you will also SAVE MONEY off your utility bills.
It is a win/win situation for business owner.
Yet, 99% of the Hotel owners I meet in my weekly routine, don’t have a handle on those 3 pillars of sustainability.
So how do we reduce our business utilities? It all starts with measuring them.
The very first thing you need to in-build into your monthly routine is measuring and monitoring your business use of energy, water and waste. This is quite easy, the information we need is given to us in our monthly bills, electricity, gas, oil and waste bills. They are going to become your best assets to monitor your green journey.
