Sustainability is essential to us here at Floorstore, so we’re taking steps to become more cautious in how we power our business. We recently had some new solar panels installed on the roof of our Cross Gates outlet, all thanks to the amazing team at EWH LTD. There are numerous benefits to solar energy.

Not only is it a renewable energy source and reduces carbon emissions, but solar energy can also reduce your home’s/business’s electricity bill. On top of the low maintenance cost, they produce clean energy but can help save money in the long run.


Energy Optimisation



Every organisation in several sectors face the same dilemma: how to balance profit and the demands of planet. However, these two responsibilities are not incompatible. There are plenty of methods where these ambitions not only co-exist, but actively feed into one another. The journey towards sustainability doesn’t need to be as complicated as many imagine. With the right energy pathway, your organisation can transition at the right pace and via the necessary waypoints for your business.

Why is it important?

Sustainability is crucial when opening a new business due to its long-term implications for the environment, society, and the business itself. Firstly, embracing sustainable practices helps mitigate environmental impact by reducing carbon emissions, minimizing waste generation, and conserving natural resources. This not only aligns with global efforts to combat climate change but also fosters goodwill among environmentally conscious consumers.

Moreover, sustainable business models often lead to cost savings through energy efficiency measures and waste reduction strategies. By investing in renewable energy sources, efficient technologies, and eco-friendly materials, businesses can lower operational expenses while enhancing their resilience to future resource scarcity and regulatory changes.

Furthermore, prioritizing sustainability can enhance brand reputation, attract socially responsible investors, and appeal to a growing segment of consumers who prefer environmentally friendly products and services. Building a reputation as a sustainable business fosters trust and loyalty among stakeholders, ultimately contributing to long-term success and competitiveness in an increasingly environmentally aware marketplace. Thus, integrating sustainability into the core of a new business not only aligns with ethical principles but also serves as a strategic advantage for future growth and prosperity.
