These days, we're all trying to find new ways to stop wasting fuel, food and energy, in order to help the environment. When it comes to business, there are many things that companies across the country can do to ensure that they're not wasting fuel or damaging the environment, such as switching off all their electrical devices, such as computers, printers and scanners off at the end of the day, and recycling the paper and cardboard that they use. While travel is an inevitable part of being in business, with traveling to meet and pitch to clients, catching up with colleagues in another city or country, there are ways that you can stay in touch with the people you need to, without leaving your office , and here are just a few of them.
Use the Internet
The popularity of the internet has revolutionized modern business, and in recent years, the internet has been installed in more and more offices. It's now standard practice to use company emails, which are used for daily correspondence with collections, clients and customers. Emails are a way to connect with the right people instantly, and share information, such as documents, files and images, quickly and efficiently. In a similar vein, the internet is also a priceless tool for business, as it can be very helpful in searching for contacts, which is also known as 'networking'. Many companies have found that working online has been so invaluable to them that they've moved their business online. Using the internet is one way to stop traveling so much, as it enables you to reach the people that you need to in a very short space of time, compared to embarking on a journey, however small, to meet them.
Try Conference Calling
A staple in offices and the business world for years, conference calling allows users to talk to several people at once, regardless of their location. This is especially useful for larger companies that may have offices based at various locations around the world, and lets them stay in touch with the people that they need to. As conference calling make it easier for employees to keep in contact with their colleagues and their superiors, it lessens the need for traveling for meetings, whether it's by car, train or even plane, as a great proportion of business can be seen to over the phone, as opposed to face to face. This not only saves fuel, and helps save the environment, but free conference calls can also save time and more importantly, money for businesses, which is particularly helpful, because as we know, in business, every penny counts.
Opt for Recycling
Once you've sorted out your travel, you can look into improving your office's green credentials. So look into getting your waste, such as paper, cardboard, and where possible, food waste recycled or composted. This will help to improve the environment, and can be very cheap to do, as many companies are more than willing to pick up rubbish for recycling for free or a small charge.
