The Carbon Neutral Company has put together some tips to help you reduce your office footprint.  The full article is issued in the Warwickshire & Coventry Voice of Business but they do suggest companies use more technology within the workplace. 

Of Course, Discus agrees!!

It is reported that offices should use more technology within the workplace: instead of travelling to a business meeting why don't you use video conferencing facilities instead.  If your audience is not based in the same building or office  and you are planning a conference or workshop then webinars are a good alternative.  After just 4.5 mile return trips you will have saved 1kg of CO2.

Also, if everybody in the office switched off their monitor at night, it would take 45 mins to save 1kg of CO2 in an office of 130 people.

If you need help purchasing new technology give Discus a call 0800 880 3360
