The government has announced it is to lead the way in establishing carbon neutral computer systems for its offices.
The Cabinet Office has proposed a plan, which will reduce around 20 per cent of its 460,000 tonnes of carbon emissions.
"Worldwide, computers are responsible for the same quantity of carbon emissions as the airline industry. It is a serious problem that requires a serious solution," Cabinet Office minister, Tom Watson said.
Government workers around UK and in offices in London will be told to switch off computers when not in use, and reuse old machines.
By turning off idle PCs, it claims it will save the equivalent CO2 of that created by 40,000 cars.
New commercial property designs have evolved to incorporate advanced materials, light sensitive panels and even micro-generation technologies.
Companies buying or renting commercial property in London could see their bills lowered if they opted for environmentally-friendly commercial property designs.
"I was impressed by the service I received from DeVono when it came to finding new offices. They considerably reduced the stress, hassle and time that this process would have otherwise involved and we are chuffed with the end result."
"We were very satisfied with the service provided. You helped us find the perfect office to meet our needs and were prompt and effective in negotiating the deal on our behalf."
"We’ve worked with DeVono for several years through various stages of our evolution. We’ve had to meet the challenges of COVID-19 head on including adjusting our real estate strategy. To understand our options, and how best to progress we turned once again to DeVono. They were always there, ready to guide us to ensure we got the best outcome for the business."
"With the myriad tools available to brokers, for me, the key ingredient to a successful partnership is how acutely our needs are heard and translated into action. The entire team at DeVono deciphered our ambitions with patience, pragmatism and good humour. Not only did they present options that answered the questions I had, they provided alternative directions informed by their local expertise, which, being based in the USA, was vital for me to be able to make solid, well-informed decisions. I would not hesitate to recommend."
"We appointed DeVono because we knew they would care and take the trouble to understand our business, our objectives and help us deliver on our commitment to our clients and our people. The outcome of the process has been entirely positive and surpassed all of our expectations. We would always choose to work with DeVono."
