Staff can help create green offices in London


Employees can help their managers hit eco-targets and clean up their offices in London.

Interior design expert Morgan Lovell has said by offering incentives, managers can engage their workers and get them more involved in environmental initiatives.

Sustainability manager Laura Conway advised there should be “dedicated staff who have responsibility for energy reduction included in their job description” and bosses should consider giving them an incentive to increase efficiency.

Offices in London could also install live energy data boards, which would show employees and visitors how seriously the firm takes its environmental responsibilities.

Ms Conway also noted workers did not expect to tackle environmental challenges alone: “Staff can not only help in the efficiency drive but they expect employers to be doing something about it.”

Commercial property developers hope by introducing green office design elements, such as low energy lighting, thermal glass and solar water heating, their buildings will have lower emissions.
