What all businesses have in common is a need to meet their customers’ needs. Many individuals, companies big and small, local authorities, charities and public sector bodies already consider environmental matters when choosing their suppliers. Some local authorities require tender applications to be supported by environmental policy statements. Showing that you care about the environment leads to more potential and actual customers.
Care for the environment
But what about the accountancy practice you use for your own business? Ethical accountants don’t just ensure best practice and adherence to the relevant taxation rules, they should also demonstrate care for the environment.
“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

Ethically run businesses
Running eco friendly businesses in the UK is an innovative way of profitably protecting the environment. It can also be cost-effective, with financial incentives available to businesses, including tax breaks and government subsidiaries. In addition, as more and more people wake up to the looming climate crisis, eco friendly businesses are attracting more customers with a competitive edge over conventional businesses. Employing an eco friendly and ethically based accountancy practice to manage a company’s accounts and advise on suitable, sustainable options gives businesses a further edge. Businesses that are run ethically and with respect for the environment tend to have happier employees that ultimately translates into increased profitability.
