Australia will have carbon pricing in a bit over a year and entrepreneurs need to get ready.
While many of the details around the scheme are still unknown – we still don’t have any real idea what the actual price of a tonne of carbon will be – businesses can at least be guaranteed that energy prices will go up.
So it’s time to start thinking about what you and your business can do about it.
Here’s the plan. Call a staff meeting with one agenda item – reducing energy costs – and get your team to start brainstorming.
Can lighting be changed?
Can kill switches be installed on some appliances?
Do you have the ability to add solar panels to the business?
Can you better use natural light?
Are there printers or other bits of tech gear that can be done without completely?
Greening your workplace requires commitment from everyone.
The whole team needs to know that the last person out doesn’t just switch out the lights, they also switch off the printer, the scanner, the urn and the radio.
Get it done – today!
