The perception that green products are costly - they are not as you think
Shortage of time to carry out the research needed
Locating a new supply chain can come with a risk, as making the wrong decision can have huge repercussions on profit margins
There are many good reasons why the transition to green can be slower for SMEs than large organisations
Lack of information can be one of the reasons it's slow to change
A higher level of income
A survey conducted by the National Wildlife Federation in 2012 found that 9 out of 10 parents would prefer to send their children to schools that have environmental education and green initiatives in place
A study conducted by the University of California, Los Angeles in 2014 found that schools that implemented sustainability programs and marketed them effectively to the community, saw an increase in enrolment and revenue.
A healthier way to work and teach
A report by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in 2018 found that schools that implemented sustainable practices, such as using non-toxic cleaning products and reduced exposure to harmful chemicals, could reduce the risk of health problems associated with exposure to environmental toxins.
A report by the US Green Building Council in 2013 found that schools with LEED-certified buildings (a certification that indicates high levels of energy efficiency and sustainability) saved an average of $100,000 per year in energy costs.
