Green and Clean Company and Facility
The growth of corporate environmentalism has made its mark in industry as companies of every size and scope recognize the benefits of eco-conscious operations.
The materials used throughout your facility can significantly influence a business’ carbon footprint. New construction definitely makes incorporating green products easier. However, it is possible to transition over to sustainable materials with flooring, wall coverings, windows, and other building components when they warrant replacement. Whether installing new or replacing, it’s critical to research the products you’re considering to ensure they are as environmentally sounds as they claim.
Today’s flexible scheduling and remote workforce create a unique opportunity for businesses to reduce the number of individual cubes and single offices in the space, instantly increasing efficiency throughout the building. If your business is making a shift that utilizes more telecommuting in its model, now may be a great time to reconfigure the floor layout, creating more community-centric spaces (think conference rooms and designated department areas) while lowering total square footage for lower resource and energy consumption.
The use of natural light within the work environment is an effective, easy-to-implement green practice. Develop a standard within your staff that makes the use of daylighting whenever possible a companywide practice to lower reliance on electricity. Bonus: Research indicates that flooding your facility with natural may also improve employee productivity as well.
One of the quickest ways to improve sustainability within your organization is to partner with a LEED-certified green commercial cleaning company. A qualified green provider will do more than utilize market-leading, natural products that minimize the global impact. An innovative janitorial cleaning service will also use industry best practices to implement a full-scale environmentally conscious cleaning strategy to minimize the use of electricity and other resources for optimized sustainability with every engagement.
