How to green your office: edie launches free guide for businesses

The eight-page guide provides a step-by step guide to implementing and monitoring 'green office' schemes

The new edie Explains: The green office guide, produced in association with Commercial Group, provides an in-depth summary of the key considerations which must be taken into account when ‘greening’ an office.


In recent times, research proving that there is a link between energy-efficient, resource-efficient and low-carbon workplaces and employee wellbeing has regularly featured on the front pages of mainstream and niche media outlets alike.

With benefits of ‘greener’ offices including cost savings, higher employee satisfaction and greater safeguarding from current and future climate challenges, ‘green office’ programmes are unsurprisingly becoming more popular amongst the business community.

But a number of questions will need to be asked before any organisation launches a sustainable workplace scheme. Where should you start when developing a green office programme; and how, exactly, can you create a genuinely ‘sustainable’ working environment in your business? How will you be able to achieve boardroom buy-in for a ‘green office’ programme? And what is the best way to measure the impacts of a green office?

Covering all aspects of office sustainability, from carbon emissions and resource consumption, to employee wellbeing, the eight-page guide answers these questions and more, to take sustainability and energy professionals through the steps they can take within their organisations – regardless of business size or sector.
