Businesses can save money by switching to environmentally friendly practices. Using solar or wind power and energy efficient equipment can help save on power costs. Recycling and going paperless can also save money in the long run.
More customers than ever are concerned about the environment. They want to do business with companies that are green. Having a green reputation can attract new customers and help build your brand. Re-branding as a green product or process can help boost over all sales.
In the realm of government contracts, going green can be a huge benefit. Being more environmentally friendly can help companies win a contract and also be eligible for more contracting opportunities. This is because some contracts have green manufacturing requirements.
Many different tax credits and incentives are available to businesses choosing to go green. Credits are available at the state and federal level so be sure to check with your state government to take advantage. For investigating credits at the federal level, start with the US Department of Energy.
