For years, “going green” has been a huge trend for businesses. And 2022 will continue this trend, so it’s important for entrepreneurs to consider the effect their businesses have on the environment.
We’ve gathered five ways you can make your business environmentally sound.
Account And Offset Your Carbon.
If you don’t know the carbon footprint of your business, you should take some time to figure it out. Once you know, you’ll need to make a consistent effort to offset it.
Don’t Use Paper.
Most things you do in your business can be completed digitally now. Stop using paper for basic situations and let your computer do the work instead.
Allow Employees to Work Remotely.
When your employees have to commute, emissions from their vehicles are harmful to air quality. If your employees can responsibly work from home, let them.
Perform An Audit.
It might be difficult to tell which practices are harmful to the environment, but it can help to perform an audit so you can pinpoint any waste management and consumption issues.
Incentivize Environmentally Friendly Practices.
Give your employees even more of a reason to be environmentally conscious. Encourage and reward them for their efforts.
Cyber security, a huge focus for small businesses, may cause feelings of risk and confusion about how to protect data, employees, clients and a reputation. If you’re worried about cyber security in your business, implement one of these safety practices:
Adopt A Zero-Trust Framework.
Many IT security programs will require steps to access the system, but you’ll have access to everything once you’re in. That means one small breach and a cybercriminal will have full access. A zero-trust framework will close any gaps, keeping your information protected.
Utilize 2-Factor Authentication.
An experienced cybercriminal can get through password gates with ease, so you’ll need to create additional roadblocks. Two-factor authentication will add an extra layer of security that most hackers can’t break through.
Train Your Staff.
Your employees must know the basics when it comes to cyber security. Make sure they are trained – even incorporate training into your new-hire orientation so you can create a cyber-secure culture.
