Greening the Office Resources

One of the listservs I subscribe to had a discussion about green office– many subscribers threw in ideas of where to look for resources. While there were tons of suggestions from several different people, I’ve compiled some of the ones that I found most relevant/widely applicable:

  • Green Practices Guide - List of facts, practices you can do, and links to resources for each of the following categories: transportation; waste; coffee breaks and lunches; cleaners; water consumption; energy; and responsible shopping
  • Green Office Checklist – List of general practices for employees and overall office operations
  • The Twin Cities Green Guide: Green Office Ideas for reducing waste, better office design, resource ideas
  • Green Office Guide – Click on the “green office – see how” for a fun clickable diagram
  • Green Office Guide – list of opportunities including lighting; office equipment; paper products; heating and cooling; water; cars and parking; and “other”
  • Green at Work” Guide - Document sharing ideas of simple changes regarding facilities, office supplies, recycling, equipment use, meetings, and other day-to-day workplace activities
  • Greening Your Office and Saving Money – ideas on waste reduction recycling
  • Guidelines for Greening Offices – Includes suggested goals for greening the office along with other info on environmental pollution.
