As climate change, deforestation, and waste continue to challenge our environment, businesses worldwide are waking up to the essential role they play in driving sustainable change. As a business, transitioning towards more sustainable practices can seem daunting, but with Eden Products, we’re here to make that transition smoother and more manageable. In this blog post, we’ll explore the steps businesses can take to become more sustainable and how we can help you!
Understand your environmental impact
Every business, regardless of size or industry, has some form of environmental impact, whether it is only a small or large amount. This is the impact your business activities have on the environment, including resource consumption, waste production, and greenhouse gas emissions. Understanding your footprint is the first step towards reducing it.
Actionable steps can involve conducting an environmental audit to pinpoint areas of high energy usage or waste. Using these findings, businesses can implement strategies to reduce their footprint. For instance, reducing paper usage, recycling more, or switching to energy-efficient appliances are all effective strategies which require minimal effort.
Switch to sustainable suppliers
Another key strategy is to work with suppliers that prioritise sustainability. This not only helps to reduce your own environmental footprint but also supports other businesses with the same mission.

We prioritise sustainability in every aspect of our operations, from sourcing materials from well-managed European forests to production and delivery.

The products a business uses or sells have a significant impact on its overall sustainability.

Promoting a culture of sustainability
Creating a culture of sustainability within your organisation is essential. This means encouraging employees to act in environmentally friendly ways, such as recycling, using reusable items, and turning off electronics when they’re not in use. A culture of sustainability also involves promoting these values to your customers.
Measure and report your progress
Finally, businesses should measure and report on their sustainability progress. This means tracking your environmental impact over time and making this information available to yourself, customers, and stakeholders. This transparency builds trust with customers and can even attract new business, and for you, you are able to see whether your sustainable practices have been successful.
