HOW TO MAKE SAVINGS IN YOUR COMPANY WITH SUSTAINABLE HABITS

Almost half of the environmental impact that we have in our everyday lives is generated during our journeys to and from work and the time that we spend in our offices. Leaving the computer switched on overnight or putting the air con up too high are examples of actions with direct consequences for our environment.

Just as you try to behave and consume in a sustainable way at home by changing minor everyday habits, you can also take steps to achieve energy savings and an optimal use of resources in your company. And we are here to tell you how!

Clever lighting

You don’t necessarily need to have lots of fixtures or bulbs to have a well-lit work space. The design of your surroundings also has a considerable influence on their lighting requirements. If you have windows, make sure you take full advantage of the natural light they provide. If you work in an enclosed area, look to use white or light-coloured furnishings to create a sense of warmth and light.

Don’t forget to switch off the lights at the end of your working day and, if possible, install motion sensors in the most frequently used areas so that lights are only activated when they are needed.

Recycle, recycle, recycle

You might think there isn’t much you can recycle in your office environment. But in fact, apart from recycling the paper that you use every day in your printers, you can also recycle plastic bottles used during the course of the day, as well as food leftovers. And, of course, you should consider using recyclable tissue papers such as those in Gomà Camps’s GC Eco or Nature ranges, both when it comes to toilet roll and paper towels, and for paper napkins and tablecloths in eating areas.

Promote waste separation. If a waste separation system is already in place in your company, don’t forget to use it! If no system is being used yet, you can contribute to getting it started and encouraging the rest of the team to respect it.

Not too hot, not too cold

One of the most common debates you can find in any office is to do with air-conditioning and heating, and what temperature and power settings to use.  The best option is to open the windows when possible to help the air circulate in your office and avoid overusing climate control systems.

Our workplaces have become our second homes, spaces where we spend a large part of our day. We have a great opportunity to start creating healthy, sustainable surroundings. Why not start with these simple habits and do your bit towards looking after the environment?
