What you as a company can do

  • Renewable Energy: Focus on the use of renewable energy, for instance when it comes to heating, driving or your servers. It will make you more independent and save you money in the long run. It will keep your conscience clean and clients will like you more for it.
  • Electric Cars: Foster the use of electric cars as it will help you to lower CO2 emmissions, be modern and stay competitive. It will save you money and environmentally conscious, financially strong clients will appreciate it.
  • Sustainable Energy Mix: When deciding on your energy sources mix, don't just have short-term savings and costs in mind. Also think of long-term costs when it comes to political measures against for instance environmental, health or waste problems, such as through carbon emissions, particulate matter, or nuclear waste. On the other hand side, the switch to clean energy might mean higher investment costs in the beginning, but much lower direct and indirect costs in the medium or long run.
  • Positive Tipping Points: Consider the chance of positive tipping points and timely invest in positive and unavoidable changes (like towards renewable energy and zero-emission vehicles). Even if they mean additional costs in the short run, they can save you a lot of money in the short, medium or long run, besides preparing yourself and your surrounding for a better future.
