Green Initiative

We believe in making the environment more pleasant for ourselves, energy efficient, and eco-friendly to increase our enjoyment of the workplace and lessen its impact on the environment as a whole. These are the steps we are taking to make a more sustainable world :

  1. We invest in an energy-saving computer, monitor and printers;

  2. Our computers switch to energy-saving settings :

    1. Monitor and display sleep: Turn off after 15 minutes or less;

    2. Hard drives and hard disk sleep turn off : 15 minutes or less; and

    3. System standby or sleep: After 30 minutes or less.

  3. We set the computers to sleep mode when we are away for short periods of time.

  4. Computers are turned off when leaving work.

  5. We use laptops or a thin client instead of desktop computers.

  6. Power adapters are unplugged when not in use.

  7. Battery chargers and other chargers are unplugged when the charging is complete,

  8. We replace our desk lamp light bulbs and overhead lights (where possible) with compact fluorescent light bulbs qualified with the Energy Star.

  9. We turn lights off when nobody is using an office, conference room, your workspace, or the whole office at night.

  10. During cold weather, we keep blinds open to let the warmth in; during warm weather, we keep blinds pulled to close out the heat of the summer sun.

  11. We keep window vents clear of paper or other obstructions, to allow the free flow of air.

  12. We recycle and we use recyclable paper.
