Recent studies show that the global land and surface temperature for 2019 was recorded at 1.71°F which is the highest recorded figure to date. It's scientifically proven that climate change is real. It's not a myth like many people tend to believe.
The effects of global warming could have catastrophic consequences on nature and many industries including agricultural and consumer goods that provide the world with necessities needed to survive.
Climate change can have a major impact on the economy. So, what can you do to protect your business and the environment from the effects of climate change? Here's how you can make a difference.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint at Home and Work
Temperatures can decrease if everyone reduced their carbon footprint. More companies are investing in sustainable energy to lower CO2 levels. Ensure you do the same for your home and business by installing solar panels or wind-solar energy to power up lights and to heat water.
Sustainable agricultural industries use biomass, geothermal, hydroelectric and wind-solar power for lights & to power up machinery used to process their products. The industrial market can use the same form of sustainable energy to produce goods.
For start-up companies you can apply for a loan to buy the sustainable energy equipment you need to lower your carbon footprint. Research the prices of the sustainable equipment you require so you can apply for a loan that will cover all your costs.
Ensure you apply for unsecure loans with low-interest rates and that require no collateral to secure repayments. It's advised that you insure your sustainable equipment in case of unforeseen damages.
Prevent Damage by Investing in the Protection of Your Business
Prevention is always better than cure so if you're living in a high-risk area you may want to think of ways to protect your business from the following:
- Heat waves
Damage to crops, your building and the goods you produce can have a huge impact on your revenue. To prevent damage, build sturdier structures that can withstand any weather conditions. Have a contingency plan to move expensive machinery, livestock and business equipment away from a danger zone fast.
Purchase stockpile materials you can use during floods, such as wooden boards and sandbags. These materials can help prevent water from entering buildings or farms during a major flood.
To purchase emergency protective gear for your business apply for a personal loan. You can loan up to $50,000 so you're able to buy state of the art equipment to protect your business from the effects of climate change.
Fast Loan Approvals for Damaged Goods
Sometimes business owners don't think about the consequences climate change might have on their businesses. Tragedy might strike a business and result in unforeseen expenses because of damage or loss.
If you've experienced damages to your business due to a hurricane or tornado you can apply for fast loan approval. These are known as guaranteed loan approvals because you can apply for one, even when you have a bad credit record.
It's typically approved the same day you apply for the loan and it's unsecured with lower interest rates. Guaranteed loan approvals are suitable for people with emergency expenses and unplanned purchases.
So, if you have damaged equipment or goods, apply for guaranteed loan approval to replace damaged items fast.
Lowering your carbon footprint is imperative to protecting the environment, your business and the economy. Make a difference and ensure you have the money you need to purchase sustainable energy equipment and the tools you need to protect yourself from climate change risks.Sources: https://www.co2.earth/global-warming-update
