Support Green Office Week

Carbon Voyage is fundamentally a ‘green’ business since our main focus is reducing carbon emissions. But Next week is Green Office Week, which encourages businesses to be more environmentally friendly. Anyone can take part and help to make our world a better place.

To participate in Green Office Week, you’ll need to get things ready. Make sure there are recycling bins in your office that are easily accessible. Put signs next to your light switches to remind people to switch off, and ensure staff know to turn off machines and computers after use. A monitor left on overnight can use the same energy as a laser printer producing 800 A4 printed copies.

During Green Office Week, focus on reducing and recycling. Avoid printing emails, use both sides of the paper and get rid of any plastic cups or spoons. Recycle as much as you can including items such as cardboard, toner cartridges, recyclable plastics and food and drink containers. Recycling just one tonne of paper can save 7,000 gallons of water. It also saves 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, 3 cubic yards of landfill space and 4,000 kilowatts of electricity – more electricity than the average household uses in a year. Reduce the amount of water you use and when making tea or coffee, only boil what you need.

Encourage staff to take public transport or walk or cycle to work for the whole week. Organise a car-sharing scheme and show staff that they don’t need to drive every day.

Invest in some plants. Not only does greenery help people concentrate and relax, plants also absorb indoor air pollution and increase the flow of oxygen.

After green Office Week, identify areas in your workplace that could be more environmentally friendly and make a permanent change. Tell your friends and colleagues about these changes and encourage other businesses to do the same by blogging or positing about your experience on social media using the hashtag #greenoffice14.
