2021 was a year of growth for many individuals and companies, especially on the environmental forefront. The COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 made brands reevaluate their priorities, and despite the turmoil that ensued, many came back with a renewed mission to do better for their employees and the environment.
In 2022, MaintenX wants to help as many companies as possible reach their sustainability goals through eco-friendly and energy-efficient equipment installations. We specialize in energy-efficient HVAC, electrical, roofing, and even plumbing installation and repair, and have several reasons for kicking it into high gear this year.
In 2021, the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) set high standards for countries and brands to reach environmental sustainability goals by November of 2022 (the date for COP27). These included emissions reductions, plastic pollution reductions, and a plan to end deforestation within the next several decades. Many of these plans will take place at the corporate level, with big brands reducing emissions and creating sustainable policies with the help of government initiatives.
2022 will also be a major turning point as the COVID-19 crisis hopefully slows down, giving governments and brands the resources back to refocus on environmental sustainability moving forward. During the initial COVID-19 outbreak, air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, and noise pollution were reduced significantly, showing businesses what is possible in order to achieve environmental goals in the next 30 years.
However, it will take more than big businesses and governments to reach the goals set for 2022. As a small business or even as an individual, there are ways you can improve your local community through environmental awareness and conservation.
What Your Business Can Do To Help
Your small business, franchise, or regional brand can make a big impact on the way you do business in 2022. Below are some simple ways to reduce your environmental impact while improving your bottom line:
