So much consideration is put into the aesthetics of office design, and for good reason. In addition to the considerations of design for your new office space, however, you’ll also need to think about the impact your business is having on the environment. Having an energy-efficient office space is becoming more and more important to business owners as well as employees and clients.
Studies have shown that energy-efficient or “green” offices are beneficial in more ways than one. Forbes magazine reports,
“…when we work in green-certified offices, we get a 26% boost in cognition, and 30% fewer sickness related absences. What’s more, respondents also reported a 6% rise in their sleep quality.”
Energy efficiency is not just about the health of our planet, but the overall health of your business and employees.
Not only are you helping promote good health by having a green office, you are also likely going to save some money. Energy-efficiency habits could also be known as cost-efficiency habits. Conservation tactics, such as replacing halogen bulbs with LED, programming your thermostat, and turning off the lights when spaces are not in use, will save energy and save some money.
Lastly, being green is good for business. Let your employees know about your energy-efficient habits and they’ll take more pride in the company. Let your prospective customers know, and they’ll develop loyalty to you and your business.
There are no real downsides to implementing some energy-efficient habits in your office space, and there are so many ways to do so.
