What your company does affects more than just your employees! You need to reduce these two environmental impacts too
Your business affects the environment whether you run an office or a construction site. That's why every company has an obligation to reduce environmental damage.
To do this, you need to deal with two particular environmental impacts most company's have, regardless of what industry they're in.
Read on to discover what they are so you can fulfil your obligation to the environment...
Two environmental impacts your business must reduce
Every company has waste material. Whether it's paper or broken bricks and cables, you have to deal with it in the right way.
If you don't, your company could cause a bigger and bigger environmental problem.
The best way to reduce your company's waste from having a negative impact is to recycle. Recycling allows you to dispose of your waste in a way that's safe for the environment.
If you work with paper, glass or plastic, invest in recycling bins for your workplace. If you work with construction or electronic materials, you'll need to locate specialist recycling plants.
Here's the second environmental impact you need to reduce.

Do you want to be fined, jailed or have a criminal record for life?
If an accident occurs in your workplace, and the person dies, you could be charged with culpable homicide, charged penalties of R100 000 or 2 years in jail! The CEO or Owner of a company is personally accountable for health and safety at work.
Every company needs electricity to run. Unfortunately though, most electricity requires burning coal. The more electricity your company uses, the more coal the power plants need to burn. That means more and more air pollution.
Rather switch to solar energy or green energy alternatives that will help you reduce the impact your company's electrical needs cause.
Also implement electric saving systems it motion sensor lights in your bathrooms and kitchen. This way these light won't need to be on constantly.
By reducing the impacts your company has on the environment, you can do your part to protect it.
