10 Green Ways To Cut Business Costs

In this article, the author describes ways for businesses to save money as well as the environment, even in difficult economic times. For example, one suggestion involved “greening” your transportation:

The kind of transportation you use and the number of miles your employees or goods travel per year will have a tremendous impact on your bottom line and on your carbon footprint. The EPA SmartWay transport program provides businesses (both carriers and shippers) with lots of good tools for reducing costs and emissions. Their advice includes using software, maps and Internet sites to plan out driving routes in advance; anti-idling strategies; and avoiding expediting/air freight whenever possible.  UPS also shares their tips for improving gas mileage (by redesigning routes and driving rules, UPS eliminated 28.5 million miles from delivery routes, saved 3 million gallons of fuel and cut CO2 emissions by about 34 million tons.)

The other nine methods can be found at the Ecopreneurist.
