In a time where environmental damage is a constant presence in the news, the emphasis on ‘Going Green’ becoming more overt. The automotive industry faces a lot of criticism in this regard due to its pollutant emissions. Megatrends such as electric and hydrogen vehicles and other emission reduction technologies are changing the landscape for good.
In line with these trends, the automotive service industry also needs to adapt and undergo fundamental changes. But some monetary inhibitions prevent industry players to incorporate green practices in their service stations. It has to be noted that ultimately, sustainable and eco-friendly practices will contribute to the company’s bottom line.
Sustainability is totally achievable. It simply needs different approaches to the traditional methods that exist in the auto repair industry. With a bit of innovative thinking and commitment, the industry can become a part of green industries.
By building greener policies into your business – such as minimising the use of harmful chemicals, lowering wastage, and using renewable energy – you may see an increase in morale and productivity and even set the standard for the industry and those around you.
Isn’t that our social duty and environmental responsibility as industry players, after all?
