As our environmental impact becomes even more prominent, creating a sustainable business is more important than ever. With many adopting ways to support the environment, it is vital that businesses follow suit. By doing your part, you will maintain the support of clients. With that in mind, here are several ways you could make your business even more sustainable for the future:
Energy saving practices will help towards a more sustainable business. A vast amount of energy is wasted in the lighting of your facilities, but this can be remedied by maximising natural light and renewable sources such as solar panels. Additionally, those based near natural resources should make use of them. For example, a spring-based spa could use heat pumps to convert the spring water into a source of energy.
Eco-friendly products work wonders in helping you craft a more sustainable business. This starts with recycled materials, such as those from renewable forests, including paper for treatment menus and wood for décor. You can then extend this to products with naturally sourced ingredients and beyond. Consider reducing the need for single-use plastics by providing glass alternatives and refill stations.

Replace chemicals in pools
An attractive way of stepping up to a more sustainable business is by removing cleaning chemicals in your pool facilities. Oxygenated water is an excellent alternative. This not only removing the need for pool chemicals, but also brings down cleaning costs. Another method to purify any pool water is with ultraviolet light filters, which according to Water Research Centre, destroys up to 99.99% of harmful bacteria.
Create natural airflow
Fans and air conditioning suck up energy, so why not do away with them to make a more sustainable business? Instead, ease the burden of warm air in a fitness studio or gym by opening windows and doors. This will help to create a natural airflow. Plants are also a welcome solution, helping to improve indoor air quality, as well as other proven benefits such as wellbeing and productivity.
