Spread these words around the office, you will be impressed with how simple it is just to do your part, here are some simple ways you can get started right today…
Look around the office, with all the business activities going on, do you really need all those office equipmets at all times? Take a second or two to turn off the computer in the lunch room, or the printers that are not in use. It will not only cut down on the energy usage but it will also prevent the computers from overheating.
2. Aim for Paper-less Office
Technology allows us to send all kind of business transaction proof, billing, etc via online. Read on-screen and only print documents when absolutely necessary.
3. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
“Reduce, reuse, recycle” means more than just throwing old newspaper and notepaper in the blue bin (though you shouldn't stop doing that). It starts with a thought of how you use things around the office. Can you bring your own water bottle rather than using disposable cups? Refuse to use plastic cutleries at lunch time and bring your own stainless steel knives and forks.
4. Drive Less
Encourage working from home to reduce gas consumptions. Whenever possible plan a carpool, encourage public transportations and biking. This can be achieved by a shout-out to the employees that start these initiatives, and community supports that Vancouver offers.
6. Start A Casual Dress Code
Not having to wear suits in hot summer months can help keep cooling costs down (thus, happier workers). During summer time, encourage more walking during Lunch time or during Breaks so employees come back refreshed.
