Fostering green behaviour at work

Tags: behaviour | fostering

The Introduction to this article states:

"When organisations try to go green there is a tendency to focus on shiny new technology like solar panels and electric vehicles. However it has been estimated that 60-70% of internal environmental improvements are dependent on getting staff to change their behaviour. When I visit clients it is all too common to see heating and air-conditioning switched on in the same room, hosepipes left running but stuck down a drain, packaged products damaged by forklift trucks and potentially green technologies like teleconferencing facilities gathering dust. It is blindingly obvious that behavioural change is a vital plank of delivering green outcomes."
