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.
"We’re delighted to have found a home at Seven Dials Warehouse and a commercial real estate framework that is fit-for-purpose, and one that gives us space to grow in the future. DeVono helped us realise our ambition of providing a sustainable and ‘appropriate’ home."
"I have worked with DeVono for many years. I value their approach – always looking at the big picture, not just the deal. They consider the real estate challenges we face through our eyes, understanding not just the real estate reporting requirements but also the complexity of our organisation’s structure and stakeholders. I’m always very happy to work with the team and value their support."
"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 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."
"I must also comment that the service received from DeVono has been exemplary. In what I have experienced to be the unpleasant world of estate agency it has been a real joy to work with you. You have been driven, proactive, reliable and extremely quick and responsive. The fact that you are pleasant to work with has been a bonus. Working with DeVono has been one of the very best customer experiences of my business career."
