There are two main events that will have a significant impact on small businesses during this COPD outbreak. The first is the declaration of an emergency by the governor. In many states this means that businesses must begin to implement emergency CO VID reporting. Emergency reporting requires small business owners to file a report with the state or local health department within hours of experiencing one or more of the identified contaminants. Failure to do so can result in fines and or charges.
The other main event is the release of the report from the state’s Environmental Protection Agency. This report will detail the high levels of contaminants in the Coquitlam area. It will also outline the scope of the crisis and what organizations and individuals are working to address the problem. Much of this information is also outlined on the EPA’s website.
The EPA has acknowledged that despite having excess funds, they have not been able to buy materials in sufficient quantities to meet demands. Part of their solution plan is for local businesses to voluntarily reduce their air contamination. For example, businesses can reduce the amount of diesel fuel used in their furnaces, furnace stations, and hot water tanks. They can also reduce the use of chemicals in cleaning and maintenance of their facilities. In most cases, the reduction of one chemical can significantly reduce the level of CO2 that emissions into the atmosphere.
In addition to the above measures, some small business owners have purchased CO2 scrubbers to help reduce their emissions. The scrubbers can be attached to an air conditioner or furnace. Once the scrubber is turned on, the air is purged of any excess CO2 gas. As a result, the amount of ozone created by the conditioner or furnace is reduced. Another solution offered by the US EPA is for industrial facilities to install low emitting compressors. The compressors emit less carbon than normal compressors.
In addition to these measures, there is also the option for small business owners to install new technology in their facilities. One option is to install a high efficiency heating system. The heat produced by such a system would be able to keep a building at a comfortable temperature. If the heating system is installed in areas where people spend a lot of time, like offices, the temperature inside can actually be lowered when it rains. This would further contribute to the US economy.
There has been a lot of discussion in recent days about the possibility of the United States federal government implementing a Carbon Pollution Trading Scheme (CPTS). This scheme would allow large industrialised companies to offset some of their carbon emissions by trading them with small businesses. For example, a company that generates one ton of CO2 equivalent per year could pay another company that generates half a ton of carbon equivalent per year in the form of a fee. The fee would then be shared between the companies. The CPTS would not affect businesses that generate less than one ton per year. This is a step forward in the right direction with the US economy.
Many firms are worried about the effect of the global economic slowdown on their credit ratings. Credit ratings affect a firm’s ability to borrow money and get credit. If a firm has a poor credit rating, it cannot get money easily and will be at a disadvantage when it comes to obtaining credit from other lenders. This has caused many firms to either cut their costs, do not expand, or start to decrease jobs in order to reduce costs. If the global credit crunch continues, this will only get worse.
In the end, it is up to businesses themselves to manage their internal processes and ensure that they do not create any unnecessary barriers for themselves and their clients. A business can help itself by getting organized, setting targets, developing a plan, and following it. By doing this, the small businesses can improve their credit rating while reducing costs and meeting targets on a continuous basis. This way, a firm can stay competitive, stay healthy, and win the battle in the market.
