Green Business Strategies
by John Herbert | DIRECTOR
Increasingly companies and organisations are being called upon to demonstrate their green credentials, whether it is a commitment to the environment by being social and moral responsibilities (CSR), or an energy efficiency programme to lower GHG (greenhouse gas) emission. The general public and other businesses want to see your greenness.
Addressing the challenge needs to be part of your business strategy - TODAY! this is essential. Yes, it must add value to your business - contributing, not inhibiting, since results are demanded by your shareholders and stakeholders. However, the tide has turned, and consumers of all services and products are looking for greener and environmentally friendly solutions.
The environmental and economic goals are NOT mutually exclusive! with today's tools and technologies lower cost and lower environmental impact are not only feasible, but are cost effective solutions for business. Your competitors are saving money today using less energy and creating a lower carbon footprint, furthermore enjoying the benefits of lower energy bills to free capital for other uses.
Here is engineering example, smarter design lowers the CAPex

First, lets clear up the myth - going green is commercial suicide, its not, it is the smartest strategy for future and for growth. Many companies start out being skeptical, it is understandable, but after the costs are counted, and the knowledge that their costs are lower spreads across the business.
Businesses are using a wide range of natural resources to produce goods or deliver services that consumers need in our day to day lives. However, finally it is being realized that these resources are not limitless, they are actually finite. And the energy input to those goods and services causes an unwelcome damage to the air breathe, and the water we drink (environmental pollution).
Progressive companies have already discovered that
they can optimize their processes and assets to make the best use of
resources, reduce any negative impact on their surroundings
their business results - at the same time.

So you might be wondering how does Kelcroft manage to deliver viable green business solutions? We use our exclusive knowledge and skill set, some examples, Kelcroft's thinking lowers the requirement for air conditioning chillers, in turn that lowers both the initial capital cost (lower CapEX) for the air-conditioning plant, and a means the cost to operate the plant is also less (lower Opex), imagine that - lower first cost, and lower running costs - a very sustainable solution for business.
Another example, better planning can lower the cost of pumping, the initial cost to purchase the equipment is reduced, and to operate the pump over the lifetime of a facility is also lower. With reduced costs, bottom-line profits increase, and your environmental footprint is also reduced.
