Green Business' Top Tips

Save Money - Go Green

Why should I consider making my business more sustainable?

There are several good reasons why going green is a better way to operate as a tourism business:

  • Increased efficiency - Water, electricity and gas are some of the biggest costs for tourism businesses. With prices high, becoming more efficient will help reduce your bottom line.
  • Reduced waste - Waste is a double cost - wasted money on purchasing and wasted money on disposal.
  • Added appeal - Customers increasingly expect businesses to operate in a responsible way and will respond positively to those able to demonstrate that they have taken action.
  • Added value - Many actions that you may take to become a responsible business, such as using local products, will also add to the quality being offered.
  • More resilience - Taking action now will make you better prepared for the higher costs and tougher legislation predicted for the future, as well as the impacts of a changing climate.
