How to create a greener work place by use of Air Conditioner System?

Creating a Greener Workplace

The best workplaces don’t have to have ping-pong tables and bean bags. These days, care for the environment is a huge driver in how businesses attract the best talent. ‘Going green’ no longer equals expensive and it can even make a positive difference to the bottom line of your business. By implementing these steps, you’ll be contributing to the improvement of the environment.

  1. Reduce Electricity Use

This can be as simple as turning appliances off at the wall when not in use, and turning the office lights off at night. Check that your appliances, such as fridges and air conditioners are well-maintained and operating efficiently. By choosing laptops instead of desktop computers, you’ll also reduce energy consumption.

  1. Managing Paper Use

To reduce the amount of printing in your office, most multi-function printers now have a function where a document can’t be printed until a password is put into the machine. Because it’s not unusual for people to print things they don’t really need, and then forget about them, this ends up reducing paper use, as well as power use. Having easy access to shredding and recycling bins across the workplace also means scrap paper is less likely to end up in the rubbish bin.

  1. Choose Green Cleaning Products

From doing the dishes, to the full office clean, choosing environmentally friendly cleaning products is as good for your team as it is for the environment. Look for products that are free from harmful chemicals like nitrogen, phosphorous and ammonia.

  1. Recycle, Recycle, Recycle

Offices go through a lot of ‘stuff’, and some of it can be recycled. This includes printer cartridges, batteries, and coffee pods. Having separate bins to collect each of these items encourages staff to recycle rather than add to the waste. Your local government may have additional information on what you can recycle in your area.  

  1. Improve Indoor Air Quality

Many offices don’t have access to fresh air, so air conditioning systems are a significant part of the workplace ecosystem. Keeping the air conditioning units well maintained and sanitised will pay off, with cleaner air, for healthier employees, and reduced electricity costs.
