Are you planning green initiatives to help make your business more energy-efficient? If not, you should be. However, don’t make these five common mistakes.

  1. Not Fully Committing: Sure, installing energy-efficient light bulbs is a great start, but have you truly committed to the task at hand? If you want to brand yourself as a green business, it’s important to fully commit. Institute green practices throughout your business — don’t just put a band-aid on it and call it a day.
  2. Trying to Do it All At Once: You can’t go green overnight. Trying to do it all at once can become overwhelming. Create a sustainability plan, identify all areas that need improvement, and begin implementing new strategies one-by-one.
  3. Not Promoting Your Green Efforts: Don’t forget to publicize your success. Showing good corporate social responsibility helps improve your bottom line — as long as your customers know about it. Let them know about the green initiatives you’ve worked so hard to incorporate.
  4. Leaving Your Consumers Out of the Solution: Give the public the opportunity to participate in your green initiatives. This can be as simple as adding a donate button to your website or as involved as planning an event that teaches them how to be energy-efficient in their everyday lives.
