A report published in 2017 unveiled that just 100 corporations are responsible for over 70% of the world’s carbon pollution since 1988. However, this shameful statistic has forced businesses across the globe to become more environmentally responsible. So, from SMEs to corporate giants, more and more businesses of all shapes and sizes are looking to more sustainable ways of surviving.
Throughout this blog, I will be naming a few ways that you can consider sustainably sourcing the power that fuels your dental business.
Reasons why you should take advantage of renewable energy sourcing:
• First and foremost, this one goes without saying. But the main objective here is protecting our planet.
• Return on investment. An article published in 2020 by Forbes proves that renewable energy sources are producing improved returns compared to fossil fuelling in the UK. A study shows that UK investments in sustainable energy generated returns of 75.4%, compared to just 8.8% for fossil fuels.
• Positive PR for your company. More consumers especially are now favouring climate conscious brands, and quite rightfully so. Don’t give yourself any chance to get in their bad books.
Types of renewables you should consider:
This is probably your most affordable yet effective option. Sunlight is our most generously available energy supply. In fact, the quantity of solar energy that reaches the earth’s surface in just one hour could suffice to power the world’s energy requirements for a whole year! So just imagine the difference that we could make if all businesses shifted towards this approach of power!
Wind is also a means of energy that can be acquired in abundance. The energy sourced from wind turbines is actually the most powerful of all renewable energy sources.
However, these energy sourcing giants have an equally large upfront cost. But this is where we come into play. We can make what might have been impossible, affordable. Allowing you to do your bit for the planet. As well as save yourself pennies in the long run -especially once taking the ever-increasing energy prices into account. According to thumwind.com, wind turbines have an ROI of just 5-8 years now, as well as a useful life of about 20 years. They also require little maintenance and running rates.
