Small Business Index Finds SMBs are Motivated to Go Green to Save Money (infographic)

According to a recent survey conducted by Office Depot, Inc., a leading global provider of office supplies and services, small businesses (SMBs) are motivated to go green by concern for the environment (76 percent), saving money (49 percent) and employee encouragement and participation (20 percent).

The survey of more than 1,000 small business owners found that more than one-third of those surveyed (36 percent) would pay a higher initial cost for greener office products if they would generate long-term savings.  Eighty-four percent say they would purchase the “green” office product over the comparable regular office product if the two were equally priced.

See below the latest findings on how SMBs are going green in 2013 put together in an infographic illustrating the eco-mindedness of the SMB community:
