Office eco-efficiency can be improved by following these guidelines:
  1. Use computers for your data management whenever possible. Do not take unnecessary printouts, and print on both sides of the paper!
  2. Activate energy-saving settings on your computer and other office devices. Turn off devices at the end of the working day.
  3. Save energy in all possible ways. If you want to offset emissions generated by your consumption of energy, use Gold Standard-certified projects.
  4. Instead of arranging business trips, try to organise video- and telephone-conference calls. Offset emissions generated by any unavoidable business trips. Remember Gold Standard.
  5. Exercise on your way to work or use public transportation. Take advantage of any opportunities for teleworking.
  6. Eat vegetarian food and meals.
  7. Provide local services instead of goods as a business gift, incentive or bonus.
  8. Try to use less, re-use and recycle! Sort out your office waste.
  9. Procure the most eco-friendly products and services available. Favour renting and leasing contracts.
  10. Act in an environmentally friendly way in your free time too!
