Planning a Startup? Even though you might not have hired your first employee or left your garage, you might already have a vision for the kind of business you want your company to become — including being sustainable. At Green Plus, we’re often asked by early stage entrepreneurs what they should start thinking about now, so we sketched out the Green Plus Sustainability Roadmap for Startups.
The Green Plus StartUp Roadmap lays out the bare-bones tips and instructions of getting a brand new business off the ground — sustainably. Included in the Roadmap are:
- Ideas for “low-hanging fruit,” or simple practices that take little resources and little time to implement.
- Intermediate steps so that businesses can plan out their sustainability efforts as their business grows.
- Advanced steps to continue exploring sustainable options as a business excels.
- Printable worksheets so that business owners set and track goals about the people, planet, and performance areas of their business.
Every business has to start somewhere, and thinking about sustainability now might ensure a businesses’ success in the future. Green Plus hopes that the Sustainability Roadmap for Startups will be a useful resource for those business owners trying to get the next great idea off the ground.
