The Energy Wise Workplace : Practical and Cost-Effective Ideas for a Sustainable and Green Workplace Hardback
by Jeff Dondero
Most people spend a good deal of time and a little more than half of their energy, money and resources in an effort to make their homes more efficient, for both themselves and the planet.
But five days a week nearly all of America goes to work, and some spend almost as much time at their place of work as they do at home.
With more than 30 million of these workplaces are small businesses, and 18,500 firms of 500 employees or more, the workplace is largely responsible for the other half of the consumption of resources in the United States.
More and more people are becoming progressively interested and committed to contributing to the health and "greening" of their workplace, as well as the world at large.
Although many people desire to do their part and play a role in the conservation of energy and resources at their workplace most think that it is harder to conserve at work due to circumstances beyond their control, and aren't aware of how, which or in what ways they can contribute to change.
In order to inspire workers to engage in the lowering of the company's carbon footprint a company must know how to improve and implement change.
Jeff Dondero tackles topics such as reorganizing thoughts about traditional ways of supervising employees, alternatives for offsetting carbon footprints, environmental effects businesses have on cities, smarter practices for recycling, and how to effectively use and audit resources. The Energy Wise Workplace provides practical suggestions and innovative ways for increasing the environmental and technological aspects of an efficient office, as well as improving productivity and work environment to keep employees happy and healthy and at the same time saving money.
Therefore, whether you're a worker or the queen bee, "green" is the new black.
