Sustainability can sometimes be all about teamwork! Implementing new and different practices in your business, cultivating employee buy-in at work and making plans for a more sustainable community in your commercial rental property all take time and effort! But they can also deliver some great rewards.
If you own rental property and sustainability is your aim, consider the intentional creation of a community geared toward sustainable practices. It could be a real draw for new tenants – who will be actively engaged with their rental home and therefor potentially care more about your property. The development of a community garden at your apartment complex can get people working together for a common cause – building teamwork and even potentially increasing the amount of rent you can get!
If you are another type of business owner, it’s important to get your employees to care about your company’s pledge to go green. Figure out ways to incentivize your staff to stick with the green initiative. Remind them that things like “reduce, reuse, recycle” which we are all familiar with is an easy place to start!
