The Green Office

Published on 24 April 2012 by in Blog


In today’s business world, it’s not uncommon to see offices taking steps to decrease their impact on the environment. Utility Bill Manager offers a variety of services, such as energy star compliance and carbon emissions reporting, that can get your business on track in terms of monitoring energy usage. However, there are many simple steps that you and your co-workers can take to work towards a greener office.

Energy Star provides some great tips on how to make green offices a reality on their Bring Your Green to Work website. The website offers checklists, videos, and even an interactive cubicle to determine how you can reduce your energy usage. Simple things such as changing the light bulb on a desk lamp or disconnecting your power strip when leaving the office can have an impact on your office’s total energy usage.

Creating a “green team” with co-workers can also help to make this impact more noticable. Posting reminders around the office, gaining support from upper management, and holding monthly meetings are just a few ways to promote energy conservation to other co-workers.
