Go Green in your Work Environment:
9:22 PM | Author: सरकारी नौकरी Sarkari Naukri

If you are self-employed and work form home, simply extend your household efforts to recycle, save energy and reduce consumption to your home office.

  • Plug all your office equipment into a power bar and turn it off at the end of the day.
  • Switch to energy efficient lighting and try to use electronic communications as much as your business relationships allow.
  • Don’t forget to congratulate yourself on your entrepreneurial spirit and your reduced environmental footprint. By not driving to work and occupying additional office space, you are off to a great, green start.
Office workers can also green the business world by implementing some of the energy efficiency ideas above.
  • Carpooling and public transit not only cut vehicle emissions, they reduce traffic congestion and give you a break from behind the wheel.
  • “Brown-bagging” it (and re-using the bag) for lunch reduces the amount of food wrappers, plastic cutlery and drink containers in the office. There are many great re-usable, recyclable food containers on the market, as well as stainless steel containers for hot and cold drinks.
  • And don’t forget to bring your own coffee cup - it’s an opportunity to reveal your personal style.

Employers can be green leaders in the work world. The size of your business does not matter. Small businesses are the foundation of national economies and if everyone made a commitment to a greener operation, the cumulative effect would be staggering.

  • Install low-flow toilets in the washrooms when the time comes to renovate.
  • Subsidize bus passes for employees.
  • Install secure bicycle racks.Consider motion activated lighting for Board rooms and offices.
