BSBSUS301A Implement and Monitor Environmentally Sustainable Work Practices Assignment 1 Name: Yu Chun (Vicky) Lin Student ID: 9990 I. Why environmentally sound equipment Running an environmentally friendly business may seem to cost a bit more in a
short-term or at beginning. However, in a long term, it helps you save money, attract new customers and preserve natural resources which is the responsibility of everyone. Here are the benefits of being environmentally friendly along with some examples. 1. Cost down: Reducing, reusing and recycling materials can lower your cost. Take paper cups for instance, it may cost a little to buy every staff a personal cup, but eventually the business could save money back since it doesn’t have to buy paper cups every month anymore. 2. Good practice can attract new customers: As the environment issue is getting concerned by the public, it is smart for a business to attract new customers by following the trend and make a difference apart from its competitors. 3. Improve sustainability: Climate change is one of the biggest environmental risk that we can clearly feel it from our daily life. Extreme weather causes business problems such as disruption of power, water restrictions, communication difficulties, and so on. Those effects either lead to higher cost for delivery or customer loss since the demand of goods and services might reduce. If we use environmentally sound equipment to reduce the environmental impact and rely less on natural resources, then our business will be more sustainable and have a greater chance of long-term success.
