Your guide to creating a more sustainable office

Learn practical tips to build a greener, employee-friendly workplace for today and tomorrow

Did you know that 40% of the world’s carbon emissions come from buildings? No matter the size of your company, decarbonizing your office can contribute to a positive impact on the environment. But a sustainable office also benefits your employees and your business by supporting health and wellbeing and helping you attract and retain top talent.

The movement to make offices more sustainable is well underway – and the scarcity of high-quality, green buildings is making the market increasingly competitive. Whether you’re looking to relocate, renew your current lease, or redesign your space, sustainability should be a part of your company’s office strategy.

Four keys to a more sustainable office
1. Relocating to a greener building

Creating a sustainable office starts with the building and surrounding community.

2. Negotiating a green lease

Lease negotiations are your chance to work with landlords on energy-efficiency upgrades.

3. Designing a healthy workplace

Incorporate sustainable materials into fit-outs and elements such as natural light into designs.

4. Tracking environmental performance

Use data and technology to collect occupancy and air quality data and manage HVAC systems.
