No Confidence in Ungreen Managers

By on March 3, 2011 in Office Supplies


A majority of workers have little or no confidence in their managers to make their offices greener, according to recent research commissioned by label makers Avery. The research was conducted for the Avery-sponsored Green Office Week which runs between 9th and 13th May.

The poll found that only a third think their managers are clear about the steps that can be taken to green up their office. The poll also found that workers don’t think much of their office’s green credentials, with only 17 percent thinking their office is “very or completely green” and 28 percent saying it is “still not very green.”

Respondents identified a number of factors preventing people being greener in the office. These included a lack of encouragement (cited by 24 percent), too much effort involved (19%), cost (18%) and lack of information (16%)

Green Office Week is in its third year and is intended to encourage offices to be proactively green, by, for instance, reviewing purchasing habits in light of environmental concerns.
