How Can Your Business Achieve Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy?
Updated: Nov 4, 2018
Over the coming weeks, we are celebrating the benefits of the Global Goals in understanding how your business can commit to sustainability. Today, we look at Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy.
Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy aims to ensure everyone around the world has access to reliable energy at an affordable price without causing damage to the health of our planet and the people who live on it.
The achievement of this goal is really quite simple: switch to clean energy. Solar energy tends to be the easiest for most businesses to adopt in order to achieve Goal 7.
However in saying this, we understand that not all businesses can switch to clean energy if they are in a rented property. For those who are unable to switch to clean energy, you can also lower your energy consumption by switching off appliances at the wall when not in use, turning off the lights in rooms not in use and ensuring your office is equipped with energy efficient appliances.
There are some fantastic government grants and rebates in Australia available for businesses who are conscious about their energy consumption. Chat to us to find out if you are eligible for any of these grants or rebates.
The final way of committing to the achievement of Goal 7 is through donating company profits to charities working on advocating for and providing renewable energy.
