Green Office Charter

Green Office Charter

Small changes make a big difference. At GLOREI, we have prepared messages as a green office charter. We have started implementing such practices within our office and are trying to spread the message to all our business partners as well.

  • Turn off your computer monitor when you go for lunch, a meeting or even a tea break.
  • Run meetings electronically by using LCD equipment to project agendas and papers rather than having everyone bring hard copies.
  • Take notes on scrap paper or record minutes directly into a laptop.
  • Email instead of sending post or faxing.
  • Photocopy double sided.
  • Use a memory stick instead of CDs and DVDs.
  • Use the paper recycling box next to your desk and the one next to the photocopier. That includes magazines and newspapers as well as scrap paper.
  • Switch off the photocopier overnight.
  • Re-use internal and external envelopes by using re-use stickers.
  • Do you really need a hard copy of it? Can you save the message/attachments instead?
  • Proof documents on screen before printing.
  • Bring a mug, don't use plastic cups.
  • Collect plastic bottles and put them in the plastic recycling bin.
  • Make the most of natural light. Don't switch on lights unless you have to.
  • Switch off lights when you leave a room.
  • Don't leave electrical equipment on standby.
  • Use energy efficient light bulbs wherever possible.
  • Don't leave phone on charge when it's fully charged.
  • Look after your car - service it regularly so it's fuel efficient.
  • How cold does the AC really need to be?
  • All office gifts to be sourced locally wherever possible.
