Using less paper

 

There are many methods to reduce paper wastage in the office. For instance, you can go digital and keep all of your word documents online using cloud technology, and even sign your documents online. You can even use less paper by opting to print on double sided paper instead of printing one sided. This way, you can will see a reduction of office wastage and printing cost in the long run. To reduce the costs further, you can even reuse scrap paper to make notes too.  

 

Remote working

 

Remote working have been thought to increase productivity in the workplace, as workers have been thought to be happier with their jobs as they can achieve work life balance. In addition, this can reduce travel cost for the employees and reducing emissions in the atmosphere. Alternatively, office overheads can be reduced by having more employees work from home, since your electricity bills can be cut too.

 

High quality air ventilation system

 

By having a high quality air ventilation system, you may find that the wellbeing of your employees improve and rising productivity. This is because the work environment would be more comfortable for them to work in rather than a stuffy environment with poor air ventilation. In addition, this can reduce the risk of damp in the workplace and in turn, increase health benefits for your employees!

 

Carpool incentives

 

By adopting more environmentally practices, you can try and encourage your employees to share rides by carpooling with their co-workers or riding a bike to work. You can offer them incentives such as covering parking costs as a reward too.

 

Recycling

 

As a business, it is good to adopt a good image by implementing green practices. Therefore, recycling has never been much simpler. With various recycling schemes promoted by your local council, you can do your part by leading with example in partaking in recycling practices. Try to include separate boxes for various materials to recycle rather than just one waste bin. This way, you can reduce wastage in the environment and encourage your employees to be more environmentally conscious in the workplace.
