Reducing Your Office Footprint - Part 1. Energy

Reducing Your Office Footprint - Part 1. Energy

In observance of World Environment Day 2009 The Sustainable Development Unit at the Department of Environment launched the first of a series of guides on Friday 5th June, designed to advise businesses and organisations in the Cayman Islands on how to reduce the environmental impact of their office operations. Speaking of office operations it might be a good idea for office owners to shop around for the best deal on their business energy, not just for them but also for the environment. Apparently, websites like Usave have a great range of quotes. The “Reducing Your Office Footprint” series will consist of a number of guides covering in detail the different areas of action within office operations that employees, Green Teams or facility managers can focus on, such as energy, water, solid waste, procurement & purchasing and travel & transport. Part one, launched on Friday, covers the use of energy conservation, efficiency and renewable energy in reducing an office’s carbon footprint. Go to the DOE Publications section for the guide and other Sustainable Development Unit publications, or download it directly from here. Part two on water conservation to follow soon!
