Hiring a Green Living Consultant may seem like an expense that your business does not need. The truth is that there are benefits beyond green living agendas that can help your business. Don’t see the connection between your business and the need for green consulting? Here are three benefits of green consulting for businesses that you may not have considered.
Green Consulting Lowers Business Costs
According to Green, Sustainable and Off-Grid Living consultant Megan Coogle over 70% of businesses use paperless correspondence and billing options but do not use paperless options within the office. “When I do consulting weather it is for GoGreen or for a private client I often find that businesses fail to consider their on-site paperless alternatives. Document disposal, portable mass shredding companies and off-site file services are all costly for businesses. By going paperless and using only one central storage backup for hard copy documents a business can save thousands per year.”
Green is Appealing
An appointment with a green living consultant can mean not only a greener office but “green appeal.” Changing to energy efficient light bulbs, on and off-site paperless correspondence options and other small green living changes a business can say they are going green or operate under green conditions. Green businesses are more appealing to green enthusiasts and reach a wider variety of potential clients or customers.
Business Grants and Tax Breaks
Hiring a green consultant and taking their advice can lead to green living business grants from the government. “There are hundreds of grants currently being offered to businesses who want to go green. These grants can offer full funding for green upgrades and in some cases can help keep a business from going under,” says Ms. Coogle. Tax breaks are also available for businesses who utilize certain green living techniques including the consulting appointment itself.
