Going green might be the answer to help combat rising utility bills and presenting resellers in a positive environmentally friendly light but .

According to research from the Forum of Private Business, which has a membership that maps the average profile of a reseller and their SME customers, has discovered rising bills is causing a green rethink.

Although going green can help curtail the impact of rising utility costs, with just shy of a third of those quizzed revealing they have done just that, there are worries that red tape and taxes will stop wider adoption of environmentally friendly policies.

"Small businesses see the benefits of green practices and technologies to the environment and, given rising energy costs, to their bottom lines. They are clearly taking steps towards introducing them but the lack of adequate support from the Government and utilities providers is frustrating," said Phil Orford, chief executive of FPB.

He said better support was needed with incentives to small business owners to adopt environmental policies.
