How do you become a green office?

How do you become a green office?

Inform your employees and make sure they raise this awareness in their family and environment as well.

Do not print out emails unless it's necessary.

Recycle your envelopes and cardboard.

Buy and use recycled paper.

Set your printer to print on both sides. Save paper by printing on both sides of a sheet whenever possible.

Use your printer's Eco mode, if available. Ink or toner saving modes are suitable for drafts and other print products that do not require high print quality.

Refill used ink and toner cartridges whenever possible; otherwise, recycle them.

Turn off the computer and lights when not in use.

Check computer settings for standby mode; computers should be set to go into standby mode after a period of inactivity.

Keep computer equipment up to date; current new computers and monitors are more energy efficient than those that are a few years old.

When replacing computer equipment, donate old equipment to a charity or nonprofit if possible.

Replace traditional incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs with compact fluorescents LED, wherever possible.

Place recycling bins in the office for all types of waste.

Use your own water bottles and cups instead of disposable cups.

Use recycled paper coffee filters or, better yet, a coffee maker that does not require a permanent filter. If possible, compost coffee grounds along with your vegetable waste.

Make sure you have at least one large live plant in your office.

Make sure your office is cleaned with eco-friendly products that do not harm the environment.

Make it a habit to ask customers if they want their receipts instead of printing them automatically.

Practice green procurement (sourcing and purchasing goods that have minimal impact on the environment).

Reduce or eliminate the use of products for which there are no environmentally friendly alternatives.
