Small Business and Greening

Valerie Khoo writes the Enterprise Blog at The Age. She seems to have a wonderful grasp of what a small business needs.

In one post she asks whether a small business owner wanted to leave a legacy.

Small business is generally not considered a major problem or part of the solution in the greening area. However, with a little over 90% of companies in Australia categorized as small business they can make a huge difference.

Valerie suggests to go green, carbon neutral, checking on suppliers and outright donations to charities. Another aspect was to become a social enterprise.

Since a small business is generally run by a entrepreneur this could a personal issue and which is where the legacy aspect comes in. This could be a strong reason to go green.
