Office workers becoming more energy efficient

According to a recent survey more office workers are becoming energy conscious and efficient.

According to a poll of over 2,000 office staff conducted by YouGov nearly half (47 per cent) of participants said their offices have become more energy efficient since the recession began.

This is partly a result of managers looking to save money, it seems, as 57 per cent of those polled said their green workplace has led to reduced costs.

The survey, which was commissioned by Avery to mark Green Office Week, found that the top green measures in offices were recycling paper (69 per cent), turning off computer equipment when not in use (67 per cent) and switching off lights (61 per cent).

Green Office Week runs until May 13th and provides tips on energy saving in the workplace.

Impressionist Alistair McGowan said of the event: “Green Office Week makes the point in a clever interactive way that we can all do simple, practical things to make a positive difference to our environment.”
