Last year on Earth Day we came up with a list of suggestions on how to make your office eco-friendly. This year we have put together a list of ways going ‘high tech’ can help your company go green.
Let us know if you try any of these and what you think!
1.) Utilize the power of cloud-based technology
With cloud computing, companies have learned that by switching to a public cloud, they can gain flexibility and scalability while simultaneously cutting costs. But what they may not realize is that the cloud not only benefits their workplace, but also, the environment.
MissionCloud has put together this article with all the statistics on how utilizing the cloud benefits the environment!
2.) Take advantage of working remotely
Using cloud-based servers means your work and the work of your staff can in many cases be completed away from your main place of business. Working remotely, even a day or two a week, reduces the need for commuting thus lowering carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere!
3.) Recycle your e-waste
As we turn to electronics more than ever before, handling e-waste is becoming a growing challenge. Only about 12.5% of the 9.4 million tons of e-waste produced in the US gets recycled, leaving the rest filling landfills. Check out this list on where and how to recycle your e-waste.
4.) Go paper-free to reduce waste
- Use email to communicate with employees, clients, and customers.
- Pay bills exclusively through digital channels.
- Keep your network in the loop through email newsletters, updates on your website and social media posts
- Schedule tasks, organize projects, share documents through sites like Monday and Asana
When you factor how much time and effort your company can save with these tips, you’ll see they can benefit not only the planet but your bottom line.
