Office resource efficiency

Introduction

Offices are often seen as having little or no impact on the environment. However, although they are unlikely to pose a direct pollution risk, offices use significant quantities of resources such as paper, energy and water. They also produce waste that needs to be dealt with and use transport.

Using resources and transport efficiently, and reducing waste, can help businesses with offices to cut their costs and minimise their impact on the environment.

This guide looks at how businesses with offices can use paper, water, energy and transport efficiently. It also outlines how waste should be reduced and managed effectively.
