There are many environmental and social benefits relating to sustainability in the workplace... A green organisation will attract quality staff and retain staff who are happy and productive. It's more cost efficient over time to run a sustainable work environment, and has competitive advantages. Finally, it means contributing to a more secure and sustainable future.  

Remarkable ways to go Green in the Workplace

  1. Change the way you commute to work- Walk, cycle, car share or use public transport.
  2. Pack your lunch with reusable containers.
  3. Print double sided, to save paper.
  4. Always recycle.
  5. Don't print e-mails, unless it is essential. 
  6. Share documents online with colleagues instead of printing various documents.
  7. Get into the habit of turning off electricity when it isn't in use.
  8. Set up a collaborative online workspace to communicate online. Rather than using traditional methods involving paper.  
  9. Turn computers and electronic devices completely off instead of setting them in standby mode when they're not in use.
  10. Take the stairs instead of the life.
  11. Instead of paper towels, use hand dryers.
  12. Use natural light, if it's an option.
  13. Use an Bamboo eco friendly travel mug instead of paper cups. (Available to purchase from SERC's Eco Shop)
