Four green initiatives that can future proof your businessSave more now
There’s no day like today to consider implementing green initiatives to future-proof your business. In fact, with an ever-increasing environmentally conscious society, today would be the perfect day. Business energy can be extremely unsustainable at times, depending on the sector in which you operate. With more customers choosing to do business with brands that care about the environment, let’s take a look at how you can future proof your business with four green initiative.
Scrap the paper
Paperless offices are the offices of the future. Paper production uses a huge amount of commercial energy, so it’s no wonder more and more businesses are taking a step away. Digital documentation makes it easier than ever to scrap unnecessary paper and communicate in a far more contemporary and environmentally friendly way.
Offer remote working opportunities
As a business owner, you should consider offering your employees a remote working opportunity at least once a week, if not more. 2019 has seen many companies take a remote working approach entirely cutting down the need to build new office spaces and reduce carbon footprints.
Consider alternative energy
About half of the energy in the U.K is produced by low-carbon sources. Companies that choose to use renewable energy such as solar and wind power benefit from lower energy bills, so have a look and see how you can switch to a greener energy provider. If this can’t be done entirely, consider some of the ways in which your company can embrace the use of alternative energy. Solar panels are a great way to start!
Reduce meat consumption if you have a cafeteria
Plenty of larger companies have their own on-site cafeterias and a portion of any menu is likely to consist of meat-oriented dishes. Meat consumption is largely responsible for deforestation and air pollution. Take responsibility for this in whatever capacity you can by offering a full vegetarian menu some days of the week.
As you can see from the four simple initiatives above, there are plenty of ways in which you can create a more green business that will join the group of companies leading the way for a more environmentally aware future. Why not start future-proofing your business today?
Paul Kay was fantastic in securing us a great deal and explaining everything in full. Thanks and would wholeheartedly recommended.
Excellent service from Kenny in the Manchester office, he worked hard to find the best price for me and explained everything along the way.
Will definitely use him again in the future and would recommend.
I spoke to Paul Kay this morning who in the space of 30 mins looks to have halved my salon electric bill, he was personable, knowledgeable and honest. The proof will be seeing if the bills actually reduce and if so I will leave another review but so far an excellent service
I dealt with Utility Bidder over the past couple of days, amazing service and prompt. Paul Kay gave excellent customer service! would highly reccomend.
Without a doubt utility bidder has saved my sanity. They have sorted months of going around in circles with a supplier in under a week.
I would highly recommend to everyone I know.
Had a lovely phone call from Connor this morning, he was very helpful, explained everything very clearing and all I had to do was agree to everything that was suggested and he done the rest! Very happy with the service
I have just worked with Alex from Utility Bidder to sort our electricity contract today. He has got us an excellent price for our charity and it has all been sorted in half an hour (possibly less!). He was extremely helpful. THANK YOU
Had a call from Alex York who within minutes had arranged a new electricity contract with a new supplier. He was extremely courteous, professional and friendly. Highly recommend.
Robert Johnson has just completed my renewal contract with my energy supplier. He was very helpful and very efficient. It’s the first time I have used Utility Bidder and I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them. Thank you for making it so easy.

Utility Bidder saves thousands of pounds on energy expenditure for Midlands business. Cable craft have been supplying cable identification, termination and management products throughout the world for over 20 years servicing a diverse range of industries.
Sharda Care are contacted frequently by companies within the energy industry, but the desire to work with UB Corporate was motivated by our bill validation service (and that they hadn’t checked their VAT).

Rob says that thanks to the competitive rates secured by Utility Bidder in his studio, it would actually be cheaper to live there than at home! “We pay about £30 a month for gas during the winter and around £25 a month for electricity – and that’s despite having a lot of energy guzzling equipment such as studio lights and fan heaters. Our energy bills at home are far more expensive!”
