Environmental Sustainability and the Workplace

  1. Purchasing recycled office supplies such as paper.
  2. Establishing a system of recycling, liaising with recycling companies and putting recycle bins in the dining areas and next to the copiers and printers. When printing or creating copies, turn the paper over and use the other side.
  3. Opting for electronic documents instead of hard copies and online collaboration tools like Google Drive.
  4. Instead of providing disposable items for use at work, provide staff with reusable water bottles, plates, and cutlery.
  5. Provide rewards to workers who commute sustainably by bike, carpooling, or public transportation.
  6. Allowing flexibility by working from home.
  7. Switching to clean energy to power office appliances.
