ECO OFFICE INITIVE PROGRAMME
Project background / why we do this?
Office is often seen as a place where administrative work is done. When we talk about Green Office, most of us will think about paperless operation, reduction of paper with duplex printing or using recycled paper. In fact, the activities in the office that lead to environment impact are more than paper management. Generally, the objective of Green Office is responsible management to conserve natural resources, reduce waste and energy. The establishment of Green Office will also change the behavior (Heiskanen, 2009) of the employee for a safer and healthier working environment.
We believe every office is able to transform themselves slowly into a sustainable workplace and make everyone a happy worker.
Organizing committee / how we do this?
We are working with four different partners to review the assessment criteria of eco office.
