TheSimpleSecretsofGreen Business A Small Presentation on Secrets of Green Business. Just the Main Points I have mentioned.                                                 Leo Victor
Business is coming under increasing pressure from government, customers and campaigning groups to improve its environmental performance.
Soaring utility and compliance costs are hitting companies where it hurts—on their bottom line.
But there is another way of looking at the green agenda—as an opportunity rather than a threat.
Some Simple Secrets of Green Business Success. Preparing To Go Green—change management, indicators, communication and marketing. Small Steps—the easy actions that will cut waste of materials, water and energy and save you money. Huge Leaps—the really big changes that will make your business truly green by changing your processes, products and business models. Hundreds of handy hints and tips. Includes brainstorming checklists
The ThreeSecretsof GreenBusinessSuccess
Secret No 1: Aiming for mere compliance with environmental legislation is a very expensive hobby. If you have an effluent stream containing a certain amount of a toxic material you may have to install a filter or treatment system to reduce its concentration to a legally acceptable level. If the law tightens in the future, you may have to decommission that system and install a more effective alternative. This can and does happen several times over a matter of years, leading to great expense.  If, on the other hand, you design the toxin out of the process, then you will never need to purchase or maintain a treatment system again. Understandthebusinesscase Treat the environmental agenda as an opportunity, not a threat. Grasp it with both hands but, whatever you do, don’t forget you are still running a business.
Secret No 2: ● eco-efficiency which is largely concerned with quantities of materials and energy;  . ● eco-system models which are largely concerned with the type of materials and energy and how we use them What to do Follow the eco-system model of environmental sustainability or, where you can’t, be eco-efficient by a factor of 10.
Secret No 3: How to do it Take some huge leaps and lots of small steps.
Preparing To Go Green The essentials of change  Creating a culture for change  Environmental management systems  Measuring performance  Creating a strategy  External communication
Small Steps Doing things right  Pollution incident prevention  Waste minimization and recycling  Energy efficiency  Water conservation  Greening your supply chain  Transport Carbon offsetting
Huge Leaps Doing the right thing  Cleaner production  Renewable energy  Green buildings  Industrial Symbiosis  Eco-design  Product service systems  Exploiting synergies
Final Thoughts understand the business case: be proactive, grasp the opportunity, but don’t forget you are a business, not a charity; follow the ecological model of sustainability, or where you can’t, be eco-efficient by a factor 10; take huge leaps and small steps.
So why don’t you get started.presented by :Leo victor
