For many businesses, going green presents some truly great benefits. You have the ability to get tax deductions for demonstrating an awareness of your impact on the ecology, and of course, you are also likely to help improve the impressions your brand creates in the eyes of the public at large.
Depending upon how much you reduce your carbon footprint by, you’re likely going to receive different amounts of money through tax deductions. If you’re from one industrial sector or another, this may also cause some changes to how much you receive for your efforts. So, a business in the industrial industry (known for being huge contributors of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases) which manages to significantly reduce their carbon footprint will likely receive more money than most other businesses.
Even with all of these potential benefits for your efforts, there is real social and ecological benefit to taking action as soon as possible. Even if you’re unlikely to be punished in the market place for not taking action, businesses can’t afford to always expect this to be the case, so it is essential that they try to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to making their businesses green.
