Creating the right company culture
If your people care, you’ll get better results and cut costs and carbon emissions. It’s as simple as that, in principle. You need to encourage employees to conserve resources and follow well thought through practices. You also need to consider ways of making it easy for your team to do their bit by incorporating recycling and reuse into the fabric of the office and day-to-day working life. If you can show them the difference they’re making, so much the better.
Those aren’t the only areas where you can make a difference of course. Sourcing your utilities from providers with proven sustainability credentials or asking your fit out contractor for advice on sustainable building finance initiatives means that you can invest in more to deliver a greater return in the long run.
While quick wins are great, it’s important about the long term. If your budget is tight now, scrimp on some technology by all means but don’t close the door to it. Incorporate the potential into your interior design and when the time is right and the money’s available, you can install the more expensive sustainability measures at a later date and begin to reap the rewards.
