Green Your Office

While it might take some time for green clauses to come into effect and actually filter into working conditions in BPOs, it would make good sense to practice green habits even before that circular from the top management reaches you. You can have the satisfaction of making best possible use of scarce resources and also at the same time help in preserving the environment.

  • Conserve energy; unplug unused lights, air conditioners and electronics. Turn off computers fully at the end of the day, since even the blinking lights of the monitor consume miniscule amounts of energy which can accumulate to major losses.
  • Artificial lighting contributes to a major chunk of power usage, switch to natural lighting wherever possible. This will not only help to conserve power, it also helps to increase productivity and well being.
  • Print less and print on both sides of the paper. When ever possible avoid printing especially if the matter requires only a brief look over. Save it if future referral is necessary. Avoid colour printing and use the draft mode to print. While on the topic of printing, never discard the empty cartridges; locate shops that take back cartridges.
  • Recycling and reuse should be the mantra whether it is paper, plastics, glass and more. Fax paper, envelopes, and junk mail, can be recycled, if possible convince supervisors to switch to recycled paper and other materials, small efforts can yield big results.
  • Bring own eating and drinking utensils and store in the office rather than use paper cups and plates that contribute to unnecessary garbage and needless waste.
  • Consider commuting options, explore carpooling or van facilities to travel to and from office, it can ensure hassle free travel and also help the environment.
  • Spread the word about the harmful effects of aerosols and toxic cleaning compounds. Campaign for the use of non toxic cleaning products. Enlist the help of colleagues to take part in becoming more environmentally conscious
    Employees need to shoulder responsibility and simple things like turning off PCs, printers, photocopiers and lighting overnight can make a big dent in carbon emissions and everybody can do their bit.
