The spread of awareness about climate change and global warming among the citizens of nations all over the world has made it mandatory for the big MNCs to bring change. Let’s see what the bigger volume of businesses,i.e., small businesses can learn from these big MNCs. #ThinkWithNiche
Big as these mega-companies be and the services they provide to a common man, but the major dependability of the common man lies in the day-to-day transactions. One buys phones, shoes, headphones, laptops, etc once in a long period of time, which is never less than a year or so at least for a middle-class man who makes up most of the consumers at any level. Then, with the increasing awareness about developing a sustainable environment, the small-scale businesses will have to adopt such methods to match customer’s expectations, their profit, and most important of all, creating a sustainable future for the world as a whole.
1. Wash your own hands first
Yes, a daily hygienic etiquette, this principle fits in your small business appropriately. MNCs have run surveys and found what has been affecting the environment through their process of work and this not only meant the manufacturing process but it starts from the amount of paperwork to the packaging material product. Once, these mistakes have been found, they optimize their work process by reducing what can simply be cut-off and is of hardly any importance or has a better alternative.
Your first step towards sustainability should be coming clean of your past mistakes This means you should run a survey and find what has been going wrong. Once the report is received, eradicate the steps that were having a bad impact on the environment. And hence, your hands are clean and ready to share with other clean hands, which is our next step.
2. Handshakes with clean hands
The next major step these big MNCs have been taking is altering their environment and joining hands with sustainable goals by co-working with other organizations that develop ways and models for creating a sustainable future. By combining their work program with the sustainable method, these MNCs make their entrance into the room of sustainability-creating firms.
Being a small business, you can start with small steps. Like finding ways for paper reduction can be a starting point. And like these several little steps can be made like, turning from plastic bags to jute bags, which not only saves the environment but also is durable enough for long usage. There are now several organizations that help in creating a better and personalized work environment. You can contact them and find methods that fit your work process. Adapting all these methods will have numerous positive impacts on your business. The first of them would be improved customer reliance and average walk-ins. Secondly, it will give you as well as co-workers a positive vibe knowing that they are working in an environment that isn’t creating a bad impact on their future generations. And with increased customer reliance, your profits will skyrocket through the sky.
