Entrepreneur - - By Toby Somerville

Are you a “green” employee?

There is plenty of talk about how people want to work for environmentally sound businesses and how people are being more environmentally caring at home. However, there is evidence that those same people may not be doing the “right thing” at work. Are you that person?

I have compiled a short list of questions to find out:

  • Do you switch off your computer when you finish work?
  • Do you use a mug rather than disposable cups?
  • Do you print out your emails?
  • Do you use public transport or walk/cycle to work?
  • Do you recycle any garbage/rubbish you create at work? (I’m not talking about the standard of your work!)
  • If you are the last to leave, do you make sure all unnecessary lights and equipment are switched off?

How well did you do?
