It is good practice within the business environment at work, both for environmental and financial reasons, to ensure that energy is not wasted.
This policy would include the avoidance of the following bad practices: leaving lights on in an empty room; leaving the heat on or turned up too high unnecessarily; leaving computer monitors, printers, or other electrical equipment turned on or on standby overnight or at weekends; leaving windows open whilst the air conditioning is on; wasting paper unnecessarily; leaving engines running and making unnecessary journeys.
In connection with transport, vehicle users should combine trips or consignments to ensure that the best use of transport is made; taking the shortest route; avoid making unnecessary business trips; driving at a speed or in a manner which is reasonably economical; and using alternative forms of transport to ensure that travel is both economically and environmentally viable.
Please be vigilant at all times in respect of these matters and generally, with a view to avoiding wasting energy. It is important that you do so both for the business and to ensure a sustainable future for our planet.
