As you all are aware, climate change is happening right now and With Mr. DiCaprio using his acceptance speech at the Oscars for best actor to urge the world to reject the “politics of greed”, and support leaders willing to take action against climate change, it is a hot topic at the moment.

 

 Here are several reminder steps that your business can take to help contain or reduce it:

  • Remember the 3 "R"s. Reduce waste, purchase reusable products instead of disposables, and recycle paper, plastic, glass, aluminum and office equipment.
  • Install energy-efficient lighting. Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs, which last 10 times longer, use two-thirds less energy, and radiate 70 percent less heat.
  • Drive smarter and less frequently. Make sure company vehicles run efficiently and are properly maintained. Keeping tires properly inflated alone can improve gas mileage and every gallon of gas saved keeps 20 pounds of carbon dioxide out of our atmosphere. Also, encourage carpooling among employees
  • Use less heat and air conditioning when possible. Set your office thermostat 2 degrees lower in winter and higher in the summer to avoid approximately 2000 pounds of carbon dioxide per year.
  • Plant trees on your company's property. Photosynthesis 101 – trees and other plant absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen.
  • Arrange annual energy audits. This will help you identify areas of your workplace that may not be energy efficient, allowing you to make necessary upgrades.
  • Encourage your employees to conserve. Have someone on your staff gather information about recycling and energy conservation and share it with co-workers.

 

By taking these simple steps to help reduce greenhouse gases, you'll also help your business reduce its energy use and save money.
