There’s just something about the workplace that turns even environmentalists into trash spawning maniacs once they arrive at the office – printing a hundred copies of a memo before running spellcheck, only to reprint when the typos are corrected.
According to Time Magazine, a single office employee can use a quarter ton of materials in a year. Shocking, isn’t it?
In Phoenix offices of all sizes, companies are prioritizing energy efficiency to positively impact their communities and the environment. Your office can follow these simple steps from Camroad Properties to make sure your Phoenix office space is as energy efficient as possible, saving you money and better serving our planet.
It’s easy to conserve energy in the workplace! Follow these 5 tips to reduce your company’s carbon footprint:
Go paperless whenever possible by using email to send and receive documents such as customer receipts, order forms and memos.
Have your employees turn off their computers every day before they head home. Program all monitors to enter sleep mode after 15 minutes of inactivity so energy isn’t wasted during staff meetings and lunch breaks.
Offer incentives for employees to carpool, like providing pizza on Mondays if a quarter of the office joins a ride share. And if you’re in the market for a new commercial property, choose an office building that’s conveniently located near commuting lines. Many of Camroad Properties’ pristine Phoenix offices are located nearby the airport, Light Rail and bus routes to cut down or eliminate your commute!
Make it easy to recycle by keeping multiple recycling bins around the office in convenient locations. Make it exciting – if your employees recycle more than they throw in the garbage all week, let everybody leave an hour early on Friday.
