Paint Away Air Pollution!

We are often asked, “What are some of the things you help clients do, to become certified under the Edenark Group ISO 14001 program?”

Item #49 from the Edenark Group Green Team Guide – Paint Away Air Pollution!

Knowing that newly painted walls lift the mood and energize your team, you will, at some point, repaint your organization’s interior and exterior walls.   Why not use a non-toxic, zero-VOC, odor-eliminating, non-animal-tested, Green-certified, Eco-friendly, paint, that absorbs CO2 and also reduces up to 95% of indoor air pollutants?

Edenark Group is a distributor of Smog Armor paint products and we recommend these products to our clients as part of their sustainability certification, carbon neutral and ESG program, as they help you achieve your goals.

It is an easy, fun, smart and safe way to improve a work environment’s visual, emotional, environmental and human-health appeal.

The Internet and Covid-19 Will Drive Your Business to Become Certified Sustainable

There is a 99.9% chance your business is defined as a SME (small to mid-sized enterprise with under 500 employees and/or under $1B in annual sales).  You and your peers might be small, but you employ 67% of the world’s employed workforce.  You run the world economy.

Your business is not like governments or large businesses.  You don’t have big budgets or big staffs.  You need to see immediate beneficial results – a project’s ROI must not only be positive, but also fast.

What do you need most?

Answer:  According to studies, the #1 thing all businesses (no matter their size or where we are in an economic cycle) need is competitive differentiation – standing out from your peers and convincing the prospect to buy from you versus the other guy.

Why is this harder for you, a SME, than it is for bigger companies?

Answer – SMEs are more sales-centric and more dependent on face-to-face selling.  You don’t have big budgets, to create brand imagery.  Your ‘brand’ is typically individuals.

What has the internet…and Covid-19…done to make things worse for you?

Answer – The internet has created a platform for consumers to pre-review a company online.  They are making go/no decisions based on if they feel your company satisfies their needs….before you have the chance to have a face-to-face.

What is the top thing consumers are looking for and that companies can stand out by having?

Answer – 87% of consumers want you, a candidate for their business, to be certified sustainable.  There is +$2 TRILLION in consumer spending LOOKING to move to certified sustainable companies.

How are certified sustainable SMEs that promote their certification as a differentiation tool performing against their non-certified competitive peers?

Answer:  Growing dramatically faster.  +75% overall growth; +67% investor ROI; +24% Net Income; +15% sales gains; +11% EBITDA.

Net, if you want to differentiate and stand out from your competitors, a powerful, and financially-beneficial, flag to wave is sustainability certification.

This brings us back to our tag line – Doing the Right Thing can lead to a Good Thing.  In letting Edenark Group help you become certified sustainable and also help you promote same, you are doing the right thing for the environment, all your current and future stakeholders; and also building your brand and making more money.

Covid-19 Will Drive SMEs to become Certified Sustainable

Wayne Canner, Executive Publisher of Palm Beach North Sports, was very kind to publish this Edenark Group article on page 27 of the February 2021 edition of Abacoa & Alton Neighbors –

Competitive differentiation (standing out from your peers) is the biggest issue all companies face.

SMEs (small to mid-sized enterprises – under 500 employees or $1B) are more sales-centric than their bigger brothers (+$1B / +500 employees), who have large advertising and marketing budgets that can create brand imagery.

But, SMEs have a problem.  The internet, made worse by Covid-19, is allowing consumers to investigate your business before you have the chance to press-the-flesh.

They are deciding yes/no based on their online review of whether you meet their needs.

87% of all consumers want your company to be certified sustainable.  This is a top competitive differentiation variable and is allowing some SMEs to dramatically stand out and grow faster than their peers.

Edenark Group is approved by the SEC to become a member of the Entrex Carbon Market.

“We are excited to become a member of the Entrex Carbon Market.  For organizations who want to become carbon neutral, and also want the comfort and assurance they are getting legitimate SEC / UN / Worldbank / ISO registered and securitized offsets, eliminating the risks that illicit offsets present in today’s market, we provide the solution,” said David Goodman, Edenark Group CEO.  “For our existing and future clients, we can deliver securitized offsets at better pricing than non-securitized offsets are being offered at.  This protects our clients and allows organizations that had always wanted to become carbon neutral, but were fearful of the legitimacy of the non-securitized offerings, a far better option.”
