Leaner, Greener Business

There are so many reasons why this year, being more environmentally aware in the work place and at home is at the top of our to do list. Fuel bills are rising, tighter rules on environmental output are being introduced and, crucially, many people actively want to 'do their bit' to cut back on energy waste and wasteful practices.

Here are a few actions that we are implementing at Duo to become leaner and greener:

1. Making a hot drink? Don't overfill the office kettle! Boiling water uses a significant amount of energy.

2. Switching off lights when a room is not in use.

3. Car sharing with colleagues. Not only will this reduce carbon emissions but will also help with the rising fuel cost.

4. Turning electrical items off rather than leaving them on standby.

5. Turning the thermostat down. Reducing the room temperature by just 1°C can significantly reduce the heating bill.

As Tesco wisely say..."Every little helps!"
