(Air Filtration News) – There are many reasons why a business is wise to use sustainable products in its operations. Designed to use less energy, create less waste, and have a smaller carbon footprint than more traditional designs, sustainability-focused products — everything from a more efficient generator to a next-generation commercial air filter — can save resources and costs, while having less impact on the environment. But a recent study by Harris Interactive highlights a less known — but vitally important — reason for going green: Your customers want you to do it. And if you don’t, they just may find another business that does.
The Harris survey revealed that 84 percent of U.S. adults prefer to do business with a company that uses green products and practices. That result corresponds with what sustainability and business experts are seeing as a growing trend: Consumers want the companies they buy from and work with to be environmentally responsible. Another case in point is the success of hybrid gasoline-electric automobiles like the Toyota Prius. The message is clear: Consumers are concerned — and vocal — about — the future of the planet. And they’re making themselves heard with their wallets.
But businesses need to embrace sustainability in their internal operations, too. Consumers — as the Harris survey demonstrates — want to know that the business is run in a socially responsible way. The good news is that is easy to make the switch to green products. Forward-thinking manufacturers have already spent years designing and perfecting equipment that goes easier on the world around them, while not sacrificing quality. For example, Camfil Farr — the world’s leading provider of clean air solutions — has dedicated engineers, resources, and even cutting-edge research facilities to the development of efficient, environmentally responsible commercial air filters.
Thanks to their sustainability-focused design, the Camfil Farr air filters not only use less energy and create less waste (since their improved efficiency means they don’t have to be replaced as often as traditional air filters), but side-by-side testing has demonstrated that because they maintain peak efficiency far longer than the competition, they do a better job removing dangerous particles from the air. To put it simply: It’s a win-win situation. Businesses reap savings — manufacturers, hospitals, hotels, and other businesses that have switched to Camfil Farr air filters reduced their HVAC energy costs by up to 40 percent. Meanwhile, less energy and less waste means a better future for the environment.
But businesses get one more important benefit: The ability to show their customers that they’re doing their part to make the world a healthier, more sustainable place. And as is becoming increasingly clear, the companies that can do this are going to grow their markets, while those that don’t will be left behind. It’s easy to see which future is preferable. Fortunately, with the right green products, it’s easy to get there, too.
