In time many consumers will be asking businesses about their carbon output as carbon consciousness begins to increase, according to Carbon Clear.
Businesses could benefit from ensuring that they have a solid environmental policy in place as a means of maintaining clients if green issues become one of their criteria for choosing a particular business.
Chief executive of the carbon management company commented: "It's not going to be too long?until the smaller businesses?are sitting in their office and get an RSP from one of their customers asking: 'What's your carbon footprint per unit of work?'.
"So there's a real value in them having figured it out beforehand and having a strong policy in place, so that they have a robust answer."
Mr Chadwick stated that every business can make a difference to climate change by taking steps towards having greener policies, adding that as individuals people have the power to make a difference in the lives of people around them by encouraging them to lead more environmentally conscious lives.
