April 22nd is Earth Day and every year around this time we take a look at how we can further embrace an eco-friendly office and we like to share these tips with you!
Benefits to increasing eco-consciousness in the workplace include:
- Saving Money
- Increased Productivity
- Positive Public Relations
Let’s dive into how!
One of the best parts about having a green office environment is that you will inevitably save money. Going green lowers energy costs, as well as the costs required for office materials.
- Turning off electronics, lighting and heat every evening
- Rooftop solar installations (if you own your own office building)
- Going paperless
- Maximizing natural light
- Office plants
- Encouraging carpooling or biking to the office
Studies have shown that green offices even boost productivity among employees. Staff that is proud of the company they work for and who stand behind the practices of their businesses, will be inspired to work hard and fully contribute to achieve overall goals.
Positive Public Relations
In an increasingly environmentally-conscious society, companies that make the effort to go green are likely to receive public acknowledgement from clients about the steps they’ve taken to protect the earth. This positive public attention can have a direct impact on your business, driving new customers to seek out your services.
If you’re conducting a big re-haul of your company practices, you don’t have to wait for the public to notice. Consider writing a blog or releasing a press release that details all the ways your business plans to go green!
