EFFECTIVENESS OF GREEN OFFICE
With Green Office, you can reduce the carbon footprint of your workplace, use natural resources wisely and support biodiversity. An effective environmental management system and long-term work translate into great results.
Nature conservation at the workplace
Most of us spend one-third of our days at work. From the point of view of the environment, it is significant how premises are developed and how to work communities act.
Green Office is a fun way of conserving nature at the workplace. You can reduce your carbon footprint by e.g. saving energy and improving energy efficiency, making sustainable purchases, paying attention to travel and printing, sorting and recycling. An effective environmental management system will show the way for your organization’s climate work and guide towards wise use of natural resources.
Earth’s environmental issues require acting quickly. Climate change is one of our biggest global crises. Degradation of the natural environment does not threaten nature alone; it also compromises people’s health, food production, economy and well-being.
Fortunately, it is still possible to change the direction. The efforts of businesses and organizations play a key role so that we can limit global warming to the 1.5 degrees agreed in the Paris Agreement and secure biodiversity. As a member of the Green Office network, you will be involved in contributing to these objectives.
UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)
With Green Office, your organization will also be implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). In particular, the goals relating to the environment and well-being, such as mitigating climate change, preserving biodiversity and developing a sustainable economy are visible in the practical measures.
