More than half of US adults believe that climate change is the most important issue we face nationally and globally. That means that over the next few years, businesses should anticipate change. That means a change in both laws and consumer habits pertaining to environmental standards.
Business owners know the in’s and out’s of their own business. However, they may not always have the expertise it takes to comply with environmental regulations. They also may not know how to achieve their own sustainable development goals (or SDGs).
Working with an environmental consulting service can take care of both of these issues and more.
Read on to find out more about how environmental consulting services can better your business.
Comply with Laws and Regulations
Environmental laws and regulations can come from federal, state, and local governments. Regulations can also come from industry groups that your business works with.
The EPA lists over 30 current environmental laws and executive orders, and this only accounts for federal regulations. These laws affect industries ranging from energy companies to food and cosmetic manufacturers. In other words, there are very few industries that don’t have to worry about environmental compliance.
Keeping up with changes in environmental law can be difficult. An environmental consulting service can assess your current practices. Then, they can build plans for reaching compliance and regulate the execution of these plans.
Meet Your SDGs
The term “sustainable development goals” was adopted from a United Nations plan outlined in 2015. It includes goals such as expanding economic growth to creating a market for responsible and consumption and production.
As of right now, businesses are not legally bound to adopt their own SDGs but the call for proactive change is strong. The UN asks that businesses in all industries get ahead of the curve by adopting sustainable, clean policies and practices.
You may not have to go above and beyond current laws and regulations. However, many consumers are looking for companies that recognize the threat of climate change and act accordingly. Not only are SDGs better for the environment but they are better for your profit margin, too.
An environmental consulting service can help you set higher standards for your business. They can walk you through the process of making the shift to create a better future for your community and the world.
Improve Health and Safety
Some of the concerns environmental consulting services can address are much closer to home. Your employees rely on you to create work environments that are safe and free of pollutants.
Environmental consulting services can test your work facilities for hazards such as water contaminants, soil contaminants, and other substances that affect air and water quality. They can also evaluate issues pertaining to oil spills, rusting oil tanks, and other safety hazards that are found on site.
