It’s a great idea to explore sustainable waste management for your business, as having a good reputation for sustainable practice plays an important role in attracting customers. Businesses that are more environmentally conscious are usually more cost-efficient than their competitors – not to mention the arguably more important protection of New Zealand for future generations.

Many people won’t even look into environmentally friendly practices, as they don’t realise how easy and beneficial the changes can be. Today, we’ll talk about why a sustainable business practice is important, and look at some constructive ways to achieve it.

What are the benefits of sustainable waste management?

There are many positives when you run an environmentally conscious business, so let’s go in-depth on a few of them, starting with profit margins. While this may seem counter-intuitive to some, it’s become apparent over the past several years that adopting sustainable business practices helps them perform better. Companies on the Dow Jones Sustainability Group index persistently surpass the bottom lines of those that are still on its traditional index.

The next biggest reason to look into sustainable waste management is the marketing. Environmentally sustainable businesses rate highly with consumer bases – people often prefer to interact with businesses that display responsibility. Taking steps to be more environmentally friendly won’t just attract new customers, it’ll help you keep existing ones. Businesses that are exposed as environmentally unfriendly often take a significant blow to their reputation with customers, investors, and the public.

How can you promote sustainable business practice?

Beyond buying energy-efficient office equipment, what can you do to decrease your emissions as an organisation? Well, it depends on what sort of business you are working in. Using alternative-fuel or hybrid vehicles in the company fleet makes a huge difference to your emissions, as does trying to convert your business to renewable energy wherever possible.

But for businesses that produce a lot of waste material, it’s important to dispose of it properly. As the New Zealand Ministry for the Environment has stated, the nation’s goal is to design waste and pollution out of the economy entirely. In the meantime, it’s important to follow their guidelines on recycling and disposing clean-fill and other by-product materials.
