Green Business: Costs


Consider the Costs – Is going green sustainable for you business?

Many waste reduction programs will save you money in the long run. Less material and energy consumed = less money spent. But there are undoubtedly up-front and on-going costs associated with adopting some of these practices.

Before you start investing, consider what is reasonable for your business. What kind of changes can you commit to that your business can maintain? If you don’t have the ability to start all of the policies or practices you would like to, design a sustainability program to incoroporate them over time, as you have the time and money.
